    I think Jim is right; I used RB brass years ago that had the undercut.

    OK - I wasn't sure of the older brand that I saw. Not much brass here except on old systems.

    Of course brass nozzles with undercuts predate all plastic spray nozzles. Boy, do I miss brass popups.

    Anyone here ever see the Rainbird brass popup body with a stainless steel spindle?

    Oh yes, 2" risers, no wiper seals, no low-drain check valves. :rolleyes:

    I miss reel lawnmowers, too. Some of those brass nozzles had enough overspray that you could locate heads a foot or so away from a driveway or other boundaries.
