    Long gone. No need to steal sales from the I-20

    Boots is right, a long time ago..that's a testament that they're still truckin'.
    The change to the I-20's, for me, was they offered a 6" stainless rather than
    the 4". With flow stop, the "Ultra" is at the top of my list. The RB 5000 stainless
    seemed like a cool head, Hank installed them for me with MPR nozzles last year, but the front end coverage seems way too much.

    I have had worse luck with the 6" I-20's than any other head.

    I probably installed about 100 of them in the last season I worked, and out of that 100, about 6 were bad out of the box, and at least 20 of them were hard to adjust because the stainless collar would freespin. Additionally they tend to leak from below the rotor head and the shaft.

    not Monday or Friday. :rolleyes:

    Start trucking with the big dogs, if you can take the pace.
