Hunter MP Rotators vs PGP gear driven pop-ups

I got two quotes to install pop-up irrigation to my lawns. One company proposed Hunter MP Rotators and the other proposed PGP gear driven pop-ups in large turf areas and SRS fixed pop-ups in small turf areas. I don't have any knowledge of pop-ups, so would appreciate other peoples recommendation on which way to go....

They are both good. MP's use less water.
The important thing is the head to head coverage, pressure loss, zoning in logical patterns, gallons per minute, water source, and an artful installation. After the install, it is all about routine maintenance and scheduling of the irrigation system.

Also never mix 2 types of heads spray/rotor/drip/bubbler on the same zone.

If you go with the Hunter guy ask him to install Pro sprays instead of SRS's. They'll last longer and don't cost much more.
