    Anybody use these? They are bit cheaper than an I20. I have had great luck since switching from pgp to 5000s, but I haven't tried the stainless 5004. I have ordered a box of them to try. I have actually had great luck with the stainless I-20, but the 5004ss are a little cheaper and I despise hunter. Is the spring as stiff as an I20? Are they as tough as a Stainless I-20?

    I heard RB prices are on the rise in the next month or so. I think ML uses the SS 5006.

    I like the SS 5000 head, especially in landscape areas bordering granite gravel paths.

    That I do, and with MPR nozzles, it's the best medium-throw head I've ever used. :clapping:

    Well now that is not the SS model in case you didn't open the link. But still a good price!

    Nope, I'd rather save .30 and buy the Orbits. Just my .02
