    we use them. i like them a little better than the RB. Seems a more consistent at the sides of the spray.

    By that do you mean less "spitting" out the sides?

    Hate 'em. Clog easily, spray pattern gets distorted. I only use fixed spray patterns unless absolutely necessary.

    We prob put in 5 a year, only when ab solutely necessary. Would pick RB over Hunter, at least.

    Thats my thinking. I use so few that its easier and much cheaper to just stock vans. With the exception od sst , est and cst,s I probably install 30 spray heads all yr.

    Have you ever had one of those customers that want one spray head adjusted perfectly and the only way is with the screw setting?
    You know the slightest wind, temp, humidity change will alter the spray next time they use it? :hammerhead:

    why -o-why did they deviate from the standard color code that Toro and Rainbird use?
