We love the look of this nozzle but we know that when it comes to gardening, you can't rely on looks alone. The rubberized cork grip is really comfortable and reduces hand and wrist fatigue — which is important when you have a lot of ground to cover. The extra length extends your reach into hanging baskets or window boxes. It offers eight indispensable spray patterns: cone, jet, angled, shower, full, flat, mist, and soaker. The head rotates better than any other nozzle we've seen. But our favorite feature by far is the flow control: with a push of the thumb lever you can adjust the pressure for each spray pattern. No more accidentally blasting delicate pansies out of the window box, or beheading tender transplants. You'll wonder how you ever got along without it!
