    Yes I understand, but just trying to get as close as possible. I am not a believer in choking down rotors very much, though we are probably going with MP's in this situation. I hate to see a 35' rotor choked down to 25'.

    MP Rotators aren't ever choked like a standard rotor might.

    True, understand that.

    Mike,
    Have you tested the 3500 for real life throw?

    Like I said earlier, the 3500 does NOT toss that far without wind issues. I'd be using a RB 3500 rotor, which can be dialed-in.

    If i'm not mistaken, they are 3 GPM, right? Why not throw a PGP on that sucker and let it rip? I'm just not a fan of MP's in a situation like that.
