How to cover a 9x40' strip?

Hi, I'm looking for recommendations to cover a small strip of grass between my driveway and my neighbor. It's a 9' by 40' strip. No trees, bushes or fence.

Are the "strip nozzles" the right way to go ?? Are they reliable?
I'm thinking about using the Hunter SS-918 nozzle (9x18').

Or would you recommend using regular spray nozzles (I love MP rotators) adjusting the arc accordingly??

Thanks for the advice.
PS: I'm running on city water, 65PSI, 8GPM. I already have 4 zones for other parts of the lawn and looking to add this final strip as a new zone.

I didn't have luck with Toro strips.

Consider the MP rotators in a triangle pattern. And look for suggestions from the pros here.

I'd probably stick with 10' part circle nozzles. You've got plenty of water for the area you want to irrigate. 5 sprays would cover the area perfectly. Using the side strips would save you 1 spray, however.
