Low angle Nozzles

What is the difference between the hunter low angle and regular nozzles for there rotors? I have regular ones on my heads and im thinking about installing the low angle ones for better coverage. If someone can help me it would be great. Thank you in advance.

Low angle nozzles don't have as high of nozzle trajectory as regular nozzles, which makes it a nozzle for shorter radiusus, to put in places such as: the section of lawn between the sidewalk and road, and areas where spray heads won't work. If you were installing a new system, you could put in a smaller rotor such as the Rainbird 3500, or the Hunter PGM.

The Hunter Low angle nozzles have a trajectory of 13 degrees while the standard has a trajectory of 25 degrees, the low angle nozzles are used on slopes when the heads sit atop a riser. Dont use them on your regular lawn, plus the standards have better coverage
