Always a Teejet

Depending on the wand SS 11002 as I avoid overrspray at the side of the wand wherever possible.

On a prespray SS 9002 as the 110 can wet your footwear.

SS seems to wear better than brass

The problem with v-jets is that they are easy to cross thread when taking them out to clean. The t-jet is simple and the filter is larger and less prone to clogging.

I have only ever known both types as V jets due to spray pattern as opposed to cone etc.

We use both what you call Tee and Vee with a flat spray pattern, and either threaded or capped.
In pest control we only capped with quick change caps were great as it was only seconds to change from a narrow pattern/low volume to a wider higher volume. Also had "mushroom" valves fitted to them to minimise run-on/dripping
We use the same set-up on our electric pre-spray units.
On wands my preference is for the capped as they are "meatier" and techs aren't as likely to strip a thread. Also because angle is infinitely adjustable you can set them straight, whereas threaded get worn and are either out of alignment or dripping.

My air induction teejet on hydroforce sprayer, puts out slightly less than original but being air induction it cuts the fines and gives better coverage. Being plastic and $40 each not for careless techs

always preferred TEE jets
a myriad of patterns and flow can more easily be sourced from the ag suppliers ..and almost always for le$$

But as Matt alluded to, it's rare to find them on anything but 2 jet wands.
It's simply less expensive to manufacture wands with VEE jets
and they work just fine too
….assuming you can screw in a light bulb without stripping it or the fixture

..L.T.A.
