I just modified mine with flood jets, also tried the AI tips would prefer the AI but not enough distance!

Tee jets 8 feet, AI 7 feet, depending on the angle I get 9 to 11 feet with floods. Trying to get the angles right in order to match the spread. In no way am I a expert on this just tying to get a spray pattern that I'm comfortable with. I am a Zspray guy and the spray pattern on the Z spray IMOF is the best. Hopefully this makes a improvement.

We measured all of ours to consistently spray 6.5 ft and used that for calibration purposes.

I feel like the flood jets work the best for this set up!

Sounds very similar in tip placement and location, if not in design to my old PG Ultra. It used 2 turbo floodjet nozzles that were positioned a couple of inches inside the front tire width and were set so they overlapped each other. If I angled them up slightly, I could spray approx. 11.5-12 ft wide. I might have been able to get a little wider with a higher gpm pump. Hated that there was no bypass agitation or a wand for trimming but loved the coverage for open areas

My old PG Ultra was fairly good. I sold it years ago. Here is the pattern in concrete.

Some areas are a bit more wet than others. What does your pattern look like using water on cement? Ideally put a measuring tape across the pattern so we can see the result. The pic shows about 11 feet, I think. If you angle the nozzles up or turn them outward the pattern can be a trifle wider. But too wide results in a thin spot in the middle.
