Pros: easy, best mist, light, no trigger
Cons: jet setting not as strong at long distances
This nozzle is lightweight, easy to use (even my grandma can figure it out on her own, and she HATES figuring things out for herself) and perfect for giving just a wispy mist to our delicate flowers. We bought one about ten years ago. Maybe more like twelve or thirteen. Anyway, it was perfect for six or seven years, and then it got some kind of abrasion, i.e. a little scratch that apparently had six little holes in it. We found that this leak did not take away from the power of the stream, but it was really annoying. We tolerated it until a month ago. We replaced this nozzle with an ordinary nozzle the local hardware guy had. However, we honestly miss our Rain Miser. We'll be getting another one.
The Rain Miser, as another reviewer pointed out will not give you a perfect jet of water. This means you will be working a little harder, and a little longer if you use your hose to wash your sidewalk. It is still much better than a broom. I find that the strength of the jet from this nozzle is not as strong farther away from the user as some other nozzles are. The Rain Miser is perfect for gardening, washing the car, filling buckets, and anything else you can think of. We are going to get another one, and so should you.
