    We use a combination of all products. Hunter PGP/PGJ for rotors, Rainbird 1800 series for sprays, Irritrol jar-top valves, Hunter PRO-C clocks. We're going to convert to Hunter Institutional Spray series here shortly.

    Hunter rules! Flow control nozzles, and 360 ' adjustable with a key!
     
  5. Now if my local irrgation house could keep them in stock

    RainBird all the way. Can't get what I want in RainBird, Hunter is my next choice

    I started off using Hunter and rainbird. I now use Nelson and love them. the rotors come with a 30' nozzle already in, setting the stops is a snap and on top of it all they come with a 5 year UNCONDITIONAL Warranty. On all material.
    There all good products, Nelson, hunter etc. Its all in the design and installation

    I'll second that Toro residential sucks. Jar tops never want to open with air pressure. They make fall winterizations (blow outs) miserable.
