    What would be your choice for this distance. For example a 20' x 40' area. I'm against dogging down a rotor that sprays 30' plus. I'll knock them down a little but only a very small amount.

    Kind of in between land for MP 2000/3000 from my experience.

    Was thinking about the RB 500 MPR nozzles-red which are listed at 25'. I've never used these though. I think Leary is a fan of these, if so please chime in.

    Depends on pressure. I would use the 02 nozzles in the original Toro Stream Rotor, but that's for good pressure and clean city water. You could always go with the low-angle nozzles in a standard RB 5004.

    10Q, 10H and 10F?

    You could do it with MP2000's but in a 20 x 40 rectangle, I think I'd use sprays. The 2000's really don't reach 20' and the 3000's aren't going to dial down that far, they seem to adjust from about 24' - 28'.

    Are you the one in my area that installs a PGP with a #9 nozzle and chokes it sown to less than 10'?

    The short radius nozzle set for the I20. I actually like MP 2000 nozzles on pressure regulated pop up bodies for 20 ft areas. Too much pressure just makes the streams mist and really overshoot their rated radius.

    Nope , Im the one who dosnt use midrange rotors and hates sprayers. Anything over 15 is a rotor with usually a #2 in it.

    If you have 45 psi at the head you will run 20' with a MP2000 according to the Hunter catalog.

    I recommend RB 1806PRS sprays with KRAIN Rotary Nozzles(cost me $1 less than the other rotary's). LowFlow= Less Erosion and Runoff(helps if there are ever scheduling errors too). I'm never confident in my nozzle selection unless i'm using pressure regulated heads.
