Yardworks Premium Offset Sprinkler
To be totally honest, when I picked this thing up, I thought its weak point would be durability. However I can't fault it there. My sprinkler is never sheltered (I will winter it in the garage), it hangs out in my yard somewhere exposed to the sun and elements still works. Even more surprising yet, in successful attempts to get better coverage by raising it up on some of my patio furniture, it's been knocked off (3 feet high) onto the brick patio - probably about 6 times. It still oscillates and sprays, and it doesn't leak. So surprisingly, durability is actually a strong point in my opinion.
Other than that, it has a flow rate setting which I don't really don't change since I got it and set it. But it's there.
I really only got this to easily water our new sod this spring, so I picked up a cheap sprinkler only really needing it to do the job for a month or so. But I have a feeling this thing will be kicking around for quite some time.
And for those reviewers that are having problems with yours (not spraying right or oscillating), I do feel bad for you, but there is a 2 year exchange warranty on these at Canadian Tire - exchange it for one that works. I highly suggest you take advantage of Canadian Tire's exchange policy. If I'm not satisfied with a product from Canadian Tire (pliers, windshield wipers, garden lights, etc.) I take them back for refund/exchange - I find Canadian Tire's exchanges comfortable and easy.

Good coverage but only oscilated for a month and now its dead.

There's a couple of of jet nozzles that don't work overly well on ours. Other than that it's worked fairly well. Sometimes adjusting it can be a little confusing.

Solid Offset Sprinkler
This is a good quality offset sprinkler head. I like the ability to adjust the flow rate. It is a very versatile spinkler with the ability to effectively water many different types of landscapes. And obviously this will be something for the kids to enjoy.

An Okay sprinkler
The double oscillating feature is really good. You get 2 differnt bands of water for more even distribution. However, I have had problems with these, and have to constantly replace them. It is a good sprinkler, when it works. I suggest spending a little more for a better sprinkler

Does a great job.
I picked this one up after using a cheaper version for a while. Much better quality. Easy to move around the yard. The kids love to play in the spray :)
