    Ordered a few cases of PGPs yesterday and told them I wanted the blue nozzles so I could give them a try.

    Was told they are an add on and sell for .25 apiece. JEEZ. I ordered 12 of them so will see how they work.

    All vendors doing this or am I being really as stung as I feel.

    Now, I have'nt been around here that long, but I've NEVER heard such a long
    thread about nozzles!:dizzy: You give me crap about tinnitus, what's the deal
    about the blues??? Red, grey..low angle, high angle..aaaaagh! I had Hank's guy install a 5500 (or was it a 5000?) what's the difference with those heads?,
    he installed a nozzle that should have chucked 38', installed the low-angle
    'cause of rookie status & the nozzle went 30' if that!:cry: :hammerhead:

    we just got a ton from our pgp supplier...he obliged with a box of nozzles that would make a grown installer cringe......

    I was happy, took some to my supply house and paid homage to the gods....
  6. Well cr-p now you won't appreciate the ones I'm sending.:cry:
  7. That's bull. He got them free and is taking advantage of demand to sell them. Tell him FIMCO said he is a friggin cheat.

    I'm thinking Hunter needs to redesign their nozzle tree. I went in JDL today and bought 2 cases of PGPs and asked for for some low angle nozzles. They wanted to charge me for the nozzles ;) I said "here,I'll trade you some reds for some greys" The manager, whom I've dealt with for years, gave me a bag of them.

    I think they could do away with some of the larger nozzles and include the more commonly used sizes of the low angles. If I need high gpm heads I always go with I-20s or I-40s.
