Good close-in (15') rotor for small areas tied to rotor zone

So after reading the K-Rain MP recall thread, I see several people knocking the PGJ. (Frankly I find it wierd that PGJ has no low angle nozzles)

What other close-quarters rotor is usable? The Rain Bird 3000 series? or what else?

The thread only applied to the K-Rain brand not the Hunter's I assumed. So you could use the Hunter MP's as long as the precip rate matched the rotors.

The 1000's won't reach 15' in my experience and with the 2000's you will have to pay attention to pressure to get them down to 15'.

Actually, the RB 3500 and the Hunter short-throw are not bad heads. We've used a lot in the situation described.

a pgp with a # 2 or 3 nozzle is my choice in an application like that.

I feel the oppsite...

I would take a RB 3500 with a .75 nozzle over a pgp "dogged down" with a 2/3 nozzle...

the shortened PGP doesn't miss spots or floods anything, so it seems no crime against nature

the 5004 has a 1.0 gpm nozzle for the same effect
