Spray Heads

I just installed some Hunter SRS spray's with the Hunter Adj arc heads.

I am very unhappy with the spray pattern I am gettig with Hunter 10' heads. The 15' heads seem to work fine.
The pattern is not complete. It almost looks as if the head is being blocked by dirt, but the blocked sections seem to move around.

Is there anything I can do to improve the spray pattern?

If I was going to replace these heads with new ones, What would you recommend? ( RainBird, Nelson.???) I don't plan on replacing the bodies, just the nozzels.

Thanks

RAINBIRD MPR nozzles. I put in Hunter nozzles one installation 10 ft. nozzles. Seems like they only spray on the two ends of the nozzles. Go with Rainbird nozzles, you won't regret it.

I dont happen to like the 10' on the Hunters either. I would go with the Rainbird MPR nozzle for female threads, Rainbird nozzles on the rotor and the sprays are much better! (although the 10' PS from hunter sprays normally)

Follow up information:

I ordered some replacement Rainbird MPR Nozzels from Sprinkler Warehouse.

Huge difference. The Rainbird nozzels are much better then the Hunter.

I am not sure if the nozzels are that much better or the fact that they are now full circle nozzels instead of adjustable arc nozzels.

I think part of my problem with the Hunter nozzels was because they were adjustable arc and I needed to open them up to 360 degrees.
