    Santa Rosas!!

    We've still got a couple of these around! Got a 2-1/2" fog nozzle TWIST-ON!!! Talk about a bugger to operate! It looks much better in a display cabinet than on a preconnect, thats fer sure!

      I am aware of those nozzles, but I would hardly put those in the same class as a regular combination nozzle. There is quite a difference between a combo nozzle with a smoothbore integrated into it and a combo nozzle with a stem that the water has to flow around.

      I still stand by my prior statement that no combination nozzle can make a solid stream.

          OK First things First I didn't mean to dig this thread up from the dead, From everyones tone it's sounds like I'm beating the dead horse but I'm only looking for opinions as to what works/what doesn't work for a Smoothbore 1 3/4 attack lines! If I wanted sarcasm I would have asked nicely for it! Not that we have that out of the way I was curious if anyone has a picture of a Hi-Pressure Nozzle it would help too!...Stay Safe

            And that's why people were saying to use the "search" function of the forums. You will find multiple threads in this same topic and none of them are different.......... They all end up the same way. You have some people that swear by smooth bores and others who will only use combinations. Each nozzle may work better or worse depending on the situation. Just do us a favor and at least look through the other forums on this subject, because it looks like it's already starting to get ugly in here.......

              Heck, this isn't getting ugly yet.

              And besides, I even said my volly FD uses both types of nozzles.

              The most common sizes of smoothbores used on 1 3/4" lines are generally the 7/8" that flows around 160 gpm at 50 psi and the 15/16 which flows 182 gpm at 50 psi.

                It's not the nozzle, it's the person operating it.
                "This thread is being closed as it is off-topic and not related to the fire industry." - Isn't that what the Off Duty forum was for?
