Flexible supply line at softener - Snakebite fittings.

I want to install a new water softener. I like to do it with flexible supply lines. I can either solder in threaded fittings or I was thinking of using those push fittings that go by the brand name snakebite.....

Would that be a proper installation? Are they reliable? Any tips about using flexible supply lines with a softener? Or should it be all soldered connections even at the softeners bypass valve?

Properly sized Pex or flex lines will work fine if you use the right fittings.
No issues with using Shark Bites.
There's 0 reasons to use soldered lines.
