    Default Nozzles; smooth bore vs combination

    I would like to get others opinion and any information on smooth bore nozzles vs. combination nozzles for an attack line. What are the pros and cons and are there any NFPA guidelines. Thanks

    Default Hey new guy...

    As you can probably tell from the responses, this is a hotly debated subject not only on these forums but in the fire service in general.

    Here's two of the more recent threads dealing with this:
