Garden hose spray nozzle-

Are they all junk?
What works well, lasts, is worth recommending.
I'm looking for something to wash cars and boats not necessarily gardening.

Thanks, Matt

I'm hearing good things about this little nozzle.

The problem with most of them is the handles snap off easily if you drop them or if you hook them on something and jerk on the hose they break. This one I found at home depot and it has a thumb actuated lever that doesn't get caught on anything, so far so good, it's pretty tough.

check out the Lonn water saver on Amazon! No handles to break,pretty much a ballistic hose nozzle. I've had one on the boat for at least 5 yrs

It is a very cool nozzle. I have one, Jettywolf turned me onto it. :thumbsup:
Stream control is not as variable as other nozzles I have used. cone, mid width fan, jet stream. It's hasn't worked well for me washing cars. ymmv
Thanks

I received the bullseye today.
With 3:min of play I'll give the bullseye a 6. It does make a very thin stream to a nice jet as advertised.
It will get a fair shake only because the the cheap wrinkle hose I have it attached to has a 1/4 turn on/off valve.
Tooo many turns from on to off and not enough variation in the spray cone.
