Rainbird hands down.
There is no substitute for Rainbird. Great products and support.
I'm happy with both, but use rain bird way more.
I'm used to the Hunter rotors and like them very much. For any new installation or replacement, these are what I use.
I'm happiest with the Hunter controllers because they are so simple to operate.
Rainbird all the time. I rarely have problems with the Rainbird valves so I don't change. Just a note, I don't touch the Irritrol valves.

Fahzu and AI Inc,
What do you love best about the Hunter Rotors and Clocks?
I personally love the RB nozzles and the simplicity of the ESP series RB clocks.
Spray Heads: Hunter. Better size and uniformity of spray
Rotors: Rainbird. I have used the 5004 and the 6504. Good distribution
Controllers: Hunter. Ease of Programming
Hunter clocks are remote ready, untill RB is , its a no brainer. RB rotors can be a pita to adjust , one has to remember not to tighten the funny ell all the way or ya damn near pulling the ting out of the ground to adjust it. I also dont like the fact that RB sells to the big box stores and my local hardware store.
Forgot about that. I see Rainbird and Toro stuff in big box and hardware stores. Never see anything Hunter in there.
