Some settings, like the Typhoon setting on the 3000/3200 spread out too much for my liking. If it's too close then it's basically a shower nozzle and not a proper burst. Shower nozzles are cool too, but I really appreciate a good burst, multiple shots that spread out enough to cause much greater damage. Here's the worst burst nozzle ever:
That's 4 1 mm nozzles, and collectively they somehow manage to put out less than 1 oz/sec! Insane. If you can see, the bottom nozzle is actually coming out so weak/small that the stream is breaking in half less than a foot out of the nozzle.

I loved the nozzle settings, my biggest beef was that I felt like it needed a separate PC and that it didn't make good use of all the water in the tank.
Monsters don't have burst nozzles in the same way BBT guns do. They are more like showers or fans. The fan type settings are several streams in one line, which is typically a little more powerful than a standard fan setting. The other settings are basically like diamonds or typical shower heads. They spread out the damage so that you do more damage than a stream with similar output, however the punch behind it is less. So you sacrifice a little sting and range for more soakage.
Trying it out on a flat cap is a great idea. I love the fact that you can mess around until you find what you want and spend so little money. PVC end caps are so cheap. You should check Wal Mart and see if they have the same "fire hose" nozzle mine has. It may be of interest for you to try out.
marauder wrote:Nope, that's just a plain brass power nozzle. I have no clue if the one at Wal Mart is anything like a real fire hose nozzle, but that's what it's titled. Figured it'd be cool to try out.
