Bob, #1 - Ok it is a "flood pattern" not a flood tip (tomato...tumato) #2 - Yes I farm and I use one tip.....the AI - Never used Hypro unitl the Z as I always used T Jet and am a big fan of thier product #3) - We never said we were innovators...all we did was add a SPRAY TIP to our machine. Did you invent the spray tip? If not...you are not an innovator either! It is called competition and every company looks at each other and tries to make it better. This is America and of course there are a ton of similarities. I could have put the same tip on as the PG as it don't really matter to me. Same results!
