Should i remove the grill from my Flash Flood?

I've heard that lots of people have and was wondering if i should.

Over all is it?

Would you recommend it?

P.s I mean the top grill.

IMO the difference is not huge from grill FFs to nonGrill FFs... if you do, be careful to not cut your fingers on the wire-mesh:p

It's been said that it will increase range, but I barely noticed a difference when I did it to mine.

Just removed mine, it's quite sharp to be honest.

It adds a few feet on to range and ,oviously, makes the stream less spread.

Got my friend to shoot me with it and it's like being hit by a car, i haven't been hit by a car before.

how would you know what it feels like if you haven't been hit by one?
Is the stream more like the normal stream, just bigger?

Stencil, no one has really said, but were you able to take out the screen fully? I mean, if you only have to make a good enough hole to get needle-nose or small vise-grips in there and yank it then I'm in. If you have to keep cutting and cutting without it ever being truely "clean" then forget it.

When I denozzled mine, it was fairly easy to remove. I used a small knife to make a hole in it, then got neddlenose pliers to get the rest out. It wasn't perfect, there was maybe one small sharp piece left, nothing to stop you from doing this mod though.
As for the range, there is a slight range improvement, and the stream is more spread out. You'll get wetter if you get hit by it.
