    All high-pops cost too much. You think you'll get a break from Rainbird? What are the current issues with the PGH?

    seals leaking right out of the box, 1 out of 3 have been junk.

    Hmmmm, you'd think they'd have a handle on 07 flaws by now. One could see possible seal issues if they try to incorporate features that Rainbird had patent protection on.

    RB makes a cool matched precipitation nozzle for the 5000+ so you can use
    90s & 180s, etc., in the same zone. I thought they had too much front load
    when we put them in, but my moisture meter says they work very evenly.
     
  10. I have on my 100 things before I die list a trip to your peninsula for a lesson on the Leary moisture meter technique.
