Y'all are going to be a freakin mess using tracker dye out of a gun that is held in front of you.

When using a single fan tip for broadcast applications we always used a 120 degree tip and a curved brass wand. This was years ago. The wider angle tends to be a bit more forgiving. A larger orifice will give you larger droplet size, less drift and a bit more volume. Of course there is the air induction technology greendoctor is speaking of and I have used them on a boom. I have not used them as a single tip handheld sprayer so I can't speak of how well they perform being used that way.

We only use blue dye for 2 things. Extremely critical spraying...usually bare ground and training Rookies to spray an even pattern.

That stuff's like handling nuclear waste and we avoid it whenever
