Watereing 7' x 102' area

What nozzles would you use and spacing? I am considering MP side strips on opposing sides. This would be a little over watered in the middle in theory. Any better ideas? When using MP side strips how far do you actually space, do you dare go 15'?

I'd probably use 8' sprays on PRS heads or a flow control valve. It'll be more heads but you've got to dig the trench either way and the coverage will be more "correct" with the sprays.

Ive never been really impressed with the MP side strips. I have been using fixed precision nozzles, theyre roughly double the cost but a person can squeeze more heads per zone.

That's just the parts - the nozzles only fit obsolete brass spray bodies

MPSS on 1806-SAM-P45, triangular spacing. The only place I would consider doubling them up (i.e. opposing) would be the corners.

Spacing depends on site conditions. Consider average wind, slope, system fluctuations and max radius.

You could always experiment with a 12-inch popup body, to see if you could get more side distance from a strip nozzle.

I agree this would be the best way to do this area. But the reason I wanted to use MP's is this area will be on the same zone with other areas that the MP's fit better and wanted to match precip rate. Not really practical to separate this area from the others.

BTW, I will use 6" heads as I always do on new installs.
