    As of Friday afternoon Hunter purchased the MP Rotator. This could be bad news for the Rain Bird rotary nozzle. Easier access to get the MP's.

    Got the word from a Hunter rep. They were working on it for a while I guess. But as of Friday it's offical. I'll see what I can find out tomorrow.

    Are you 100% positive that every "Rainbird" product (past and present) has been developed totally inhouse? You have a 50/50 chance of getting this question right. :laugh:

    I'm absolutely positive that RB uses more and produces less patent technology than any other company in this buisness. The real question would be has RB EVER presented a product from in house only research and technology? Might have been what happened with the T-Bird!

    I think I would put Hunter at the top of the list of patent and tech producers now that Toro owns Irritrol, but that is shooting from the gut, not real knowledge.
