Default Washer Nozzle Upgrades?

Hey guys. I'm just wondering if anyone here by chance has upgraded their washer nozzle. I'm looking to get new ones as one of mine hardly works. And the other OEM one sprays like a stream of urine (aka bad spray pattern). Any and all input would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance!

(Forgive the bad typing. I'm on a phone)

a thumb tack usually fixes the sprayers. they get clogged with wax, dirt etc. that is how you aim them too....just remember that a little bit goes a long way when moving the nozzle head.

Even when they're clean they do have a really crap spray pattern. The ones on my car practically coat the whole windshield.

On my truck I just wash the windshield every time I stop for gas.

I've read on the Mazda 3 forum that 2008-2012 Ford Fusion wiper nozzles have a really good pattern, not sure if they would fit the Hardbody hole in the hood though.

Maybe I'll just rig up a system to dump water buckets instead of nozzles. Just kidding. I wasn't looking to clean them. Just replace. I'll do some more research and possibly report back. Thanks guys.
