need advise on sprinker heads
 
I have a about 25x25 area of grass with 12 sprinker heads separated into 3 zones.

My sprinker heads are completely missing the grass closer to the nozzle in some area due to the nozzles are only getting the area at least 4-5 feet away leaving a lot of brown spots.

I'm looking to replace either the head or the entire body with something that can provide better coverage throughout. Can you recommend a good one?

I found that rainbird has a U series which supposed to provide better close range area. Before I jump on it, just wanted to see what everyone is using.

I like the rotary nozzles Rainbird R-VAN over the fixed spray. Do your head spray patterns overlap?

They do overlap but it just doesn't seem to have enough of it.

Probably your water is coming out in a fine mist....is there a way that you can adjust to shorten the throw..and produce larger drops...which might help. Are there other nozzles that are interchangeable ?

It was not clear to me...are these the old brass pop ups or something else ?
