    Anyone used them yet? I am looking to put these in business this year, just need some opinions on them? Good? Bad?

    I have used them I like em. I like the rain curtain nozzels and the shut off on top of the head. I just bought 2 cases of them. In my opinion the rain curtain nozzle is the best on the market today. My 2 cents

    I was looking at them on the Rainbird website today. Do they have green covers now?

    Still a relatively new rotor, let someone else find out what the life and reliability problems will be. With Regards... devildog

    The ones that I have installed do have the green cover.

    I switched from Rain Bird R-50's to the 5000"s two years ago. Probably have intalled 2500+ units. I love them. Very installer friendly and customer friendly. Reliability has been great.
