I want an all metal impact sprinkler.

Ive been searching all the sites that sell impact sprinklers for one specific item: an all metal pop up impact sprinkler.

Why? Well, when I was a kid, my dad had them. I believe he got them from a golf course. By far the biggest reason I want one is the satisfying 'wsssh WACK wssh WACK' sound they make. I dont care if my lawn is brown and dead as long as my sprinkers sound good [8D] Plus, all the crapy plastic pop up sprinklers ive had in my life just give me grief. A nice big hunk of metal will just laugh at grass that tries to push it sideways, or try to over grow it so it wont pop up. Plus, if I fail to blow it all out early enough for our hard winters, I think that a nice metal sprinkler head will be more forgiving of my neglegence.

My dads old connection (the grounds keeper let him in to 'steal' a few, for a bottle) is long since lost. Where can I find one of these solid beauties for my own yard?

I'm not sure where you could get one of those "metal beauties," but if you give up the search for metal I say go Rainbird If you want impact go with the maxipaw and if you decide to just go with a regular gear drive I recommend the 5004 plus. Excellent heads. I'm not sure how they put up with being frozen with water in them. I don't know if any sprinkler puts up with that very well. Well good luck on your search!

Go with the Hunter I-20 Stainless steal Head. They work nice and are very easy to program.
