Picked up a ShurFlo SRS-600 and need a better spray wand

It comes with a TeeJet 50800 that I'm not a fan of, before I went and tried to find a replacement, figured I would come and ask if there is a "best" spray wand out there reading thru some threads in my search I found the 50800 is junk, is the TeeJet 22670 the one to go with? Or another brand?

Thanks!!

These are what were suggested to me by a few ppl here when I bought a shurflo.
I use a different sprayer now but still use the same wands.
My only issue is the hose barb...they seem to get brittle quicker than most & ALWAYS snap when you take the sprayer off & drop the wand. Gemplers does carry the barbs but you cant find them on their site...gotta email them. I bought a 6 pack of them.

See my old thread here...
http://www.lawnsite.com/showthread.php?t=366249

I went with a fastpac this time around. See post #12 & #14 in above thread about it.
I'm still using it but quite frankly I'm just waiting for the pump to take another $h!t and back to fastpac it goes....again. For the cost I'm not impressed with either unit. Especially for how little use/abuse I put it thru.

To be honest I hope to not be doing this kind of work in another 2-3 years anyways. No not old enough to retire. Just looking for a career change as well as get outta this sweaty locker room of a state they call florida. Been at this for 24 years now
I bought the extended warr with this last unit...so hopefully when the warr. runs out I wont give a damn about it & will be doing something else

I like the Shurflo myself.
I replaced the plastic wand with aluminum ones from Sprayer Specialties in Grimes, IA (see website).
Doesnt matter what wand you use, it will last about a season and be gummed up and shot from running solvents and spreader/sticker through it. They only run about $10 apiece anyway, buy a bunch up front.

I have never replaced a wand because it was gummed up. Only because I broke them mine last many seasons. I like the tee jet wand the all plastic one.

We also use the Shurflo SRS-600's. The first thing I do is take off the T-Jet wand. They all drip. We had been getting a W. L. Hamiliton Co. spray lance at Tractor Supply. We bought the last one the other day, so I was looking for another replacement also. Has any one used the Fimco $14.75 wands from Gemplers? The reason I ask is they look allot like the W. L. Hamilton lances we were using. And they are a 10 spot cheaper than the 29" stainless that was recommended earlier in this thread. How about the Valley Industries wand from Northern Tool? That one is only 10 bucks online.
