In response to Re: Rubber coupling...
: These are called, Fernco couplers, and they're neophrene with stainless steel clamps. They will out last you.

That is probably true, but I suspect the poster was referring to the Fernco rubber "fittings," which include various tee's, wye's, etc., rather than staright couplers... I suspect that these rubber fittings are also durable, but they are not always approved by the local authorities for permanent installation, especially in concealed locations. I use them mostly for remodel work in progress, where the homeowner is using the fixtures, but these need to be connected and disconnected during the remodel, i.e. as temporary drain connections, to be replaced by permanent drain fittings at the completion of the work.
