Want something good...

Thanks!

A nozzle doesn't increase pressure, it increases velocity

If it increases velocity of course it increases pressure. Basic physics.

I also bought mine from costco, and have noted that the problem was caused by a twisted or bent hose.

You don't understand the difference between static and dynamic pressure do you? The user of a hose nozzle, pressure washer or air gun doesn't care too much about static pressure.

Increase in velocity, decrease in pressure.

Thanks. Made sure my hose was not kinked.

Any suggestions from anyone for better nozzles?

Just get the basic metal pistol. I have purchased basically everything from wands, multi-spray heads, expensive gun models... Only the $4 metal pistol is best cause I break all the rest.
