one head on zone low pressure

When I started up my sprinkler for the season all heads are working good except one sprayer at the end of a zone

The head before has about 30 PSI and works perfect but the next one does not have enough pressure to even pop

So I took apart the head and used my garden hose to force water into the line and it got a little better, I feel there is a rock in the line but I don’t know how to fix it

Any suggestions would be wonderful

How long is the stretch from the 2nd to last head to the last head? If its not too long just dig the line up and replace it..

See if there's a restriction in the fitting of the head in question, i.e., below the nipple. If that's not it, try the NEXT closest head and fitting on that line before you dig up and replace the whole lateral line between.
