High flow exterior faucet?


Hello everyone first post here.

I recently added a new sprinkler system fed by the outside faucet. It works great since I ran 3/4 pex to it form main coming into house.
My question is my other faucet I have a 100 ft water hose with two tandem impact sprinklers going to my other side yard on a timer hooked up from a 1/2 line and a frost free sprinkler. It's not putting out enough volume to run the both full force. I replaced the original due to leaking.

So a long winded question is does anybody know of a higher volume faucet I can buy to help with volume?

Pressure is 55 off 3/4 line at 10 gpm. Haven't measured new one.

Try a full flow ball valve.

Sometimes referred to as Full Port as opposed to reduced port.
