Either I missed this or just forgot about it. Been more than a year since the article.

For you guys who use Unique products more than I do, how's this transition going?

So, if Toro owns Unique, and Hunter owns FX, which lighting company is Rain Bird going to acquire?

I must be losin' it... quoting myself from over a year ago...

1. Some folks don't like a few of the things Toro has done with Irritrol since acquiring them. Others are still concerned about what they'll do with Rainmaster. I try to avoid Toro sprinkler products.

2. So now that Hunter owns FXL and Toro owns Unique, which lighting company is Rain Bird going to acquire?

Yep. My kids tell me when I repeat myself now too. They get impatient about it the way I used to with my dad.

What goes around....

None. They aren't very interested in getting into the lighting marketplace at this point.

If they were smart they would take a hard look at Vista.... but then again their market share is so large that they probably don't need to bring on a lighting line.
