sharkbite connections

I am plumbing my house with pex tubing and sharkbite connections.I am using 1/2" pex tubing.Was going to use the sharkbite braided water lines but they only come in *3/4"FIP x 3/4" sharkbite,so i am looking for something to get from 1/2" sharkbite to 3/4" sharkbite.Does sharkbite make a swedge? Thanks!

You are using sharkbites as connectors on a general plumbing job????? At $5 a pop? Why don't you use pex rings? They are about 25 cents a piece. Pex also has 1/2 x 3/4" connectors. Wow, let us know about this as I think you will spend way too much money on it. A pex crimper will run about $65. 10 sharkbites would pay for it.
In addition, you should be running 3/4" main runs with 1/2" take offs for each device for proper flow and to reduce odd temperature showers when someone flushes a commode.
