    I thought I was wrong once... it turned out that I was just mistaken...

    We have used the vindicator for years and it works very well. I don't care for the version on the master stream, even though it flows over 1000 gpm I don't feel it has the reach and hit that a solid stream has.
    Never had a wind driven fire with it, but I have similar concerns about its ability to get deep to the seat
