Default Choosing sprinkler head


I have a lawn area in the front of the house which is about 25x26 ft.

I am looking at placing 4 sprinklers (one on each corner). I live in the southern calif area.

The lawn is considered flat (minor slope).

Can somebody with experience with both heads, tell me which is better to use.

I am partial to Hunter heads. They come with a dozen different nozzles that are easy to change. The heads are adjustable from around 25 degrees to over 360 degrees. They pop up when water pressure is applied then disappear into the ground when pressure is removed. The screw that holds the nozzle in place can also be screwed down further to break up the water stream if it is reaching out too far. The tool that comes with the heads is easy to use.
PGP® Rotary Sprinklers

Most things that relate to water in the big box stores are not high enough in quality that I would be willing to expend the labor to install them in the ground knowing how short a life they will likely have.

At the local college, the facility people tells me sprinklers are made from Hunter.
