RainBird R-Van or Hunter MP-Rotator?


I'm new and I'm planning my watering and need some help. I want to use a ratator sprinkler and in my first planning I need a lot of sprinkler with 2.4m radius. I replaced them with strip sprinkler. Therefor my first chooise where the RainBird R-Van (RD-04-S-P45-F) with 3.1bar. Now I can also use the Hunter MP-Rotator Pro-Spray PRS-40. Someone said, that the RainBird are much worse in terms of precipitation distribution and uniformity. But I don't know so I hope to get a suggestion with a reason to understand it.

I like the RainBird because I need only one springler for "all" angle and the RainBird can handle max 6.9bar. I want to use a 1'' pipe with approx. 6.0bar at the first sprinkler. I don't know how much the Hunter can handle and if the precipitation distribution is realy so much worst then the Hunter.

So, which one would you prefere if you want use 6.0bar and why?

Thanks a lot in advance and best regards
