I am sure you have researched Boom and Flood tips a lot more than any of us who use them in the field. The only thing I wish to add is a long cement road or driveway is perfect to see the distribution a Boom or Flood nozzle gives. Sorry but I don't own one of your fine machines. But I have build my own ride on units and tweaking the nozzles is the hardest part.

We will offer the Hypro wide angle tip as an option, but by no means do we think it is as effective as the current AI tips we currently use. In fact we just added the AI tips to our JR 36. As you can see by Bob's picks the single tip spray pattern seems to disperse wildly. particularly forward, where you can see the AI tips on the boom seem more controlled and we believe more precise. Also the pictures look to have benn taken inside where the wind would not be a factor.

Boomless nozzles have been around for years. The tip in discussion has been offered by Hypro since 2004. The single tip can be effective in certain applications, but we do not feel it is the best primary spray system. LT Rich prides itself on offering its customers the most choices, and this tip is just another. A great analogy would be pick up trucks. What if Chevy, Ford and Dodge just offered one size of truck?
I agree... In my testing the single tip is not as precise, especially in straight runs.. and probably won't be favored by everybody.. It has to be used like the spreader, and with a little bit of overlap. (notice how the pattern resembles a spreader pattern)

I definately preferred the less precise pattern of the hyflo.. especially when using iron, because in the event of over application, the site is feathered into ajoining turf rather than leaving a 'hard' edge. sorta like the difference between an airbrush and a paint brush. everyone will have their preference.

I think everyone is delighted that you're now offering this option!

well said zspray info, what i said in the very biggining. it is a great option. everyoine has their own favs and techniques that work for them. i would never want to use this tip as the sole way to spray, that is why it is nice to have the option, not a fixed way of doing things

You can put a steering wheel from a boat on there because that is what it reminds me of when I see someone on the T. The helmsman of the ship.
