    I have run into a 5' x 37 foor strip and 5' by 68' strips. I was going to use 8' nozzles and turn down the radius. An awful lot of heads.

    Any experience trying to use a 15' SST by RB which in theory will only go 4'?

    Hunter has a 5SST that in theory will go 5' out. Either of these options would cut down on the heads considerably.

    Working with 60psi.

    Hunter should work fine, and they make 5x15 corner nozzles, so you can space them head-to-head if you want.

    RB 9 SST's and 15SST's work excellent in that application
