Bad quality windshield nozzles?

From experience, I've been noticing my nozzles spraying so poorly in a sense that the passenger side nozzle does not reach far enough to get most of the passenger side. May be I'm being a bit neurotic but it just bothers me when there are white streaks left behind from wiped dirt residue that wasn't spray on. Wondering if anyone tried adjusting the nozzles direction or... changed it to an after market nozzle spray. I changed a family member's nozzle on their truck with an aftermarket nozzle I bought from an automotive store nearby. To this day, the vehicle still sprays with excellent windshield coverage and has never once clogged up. I'm considering doing the same install on my cx-3.

You can improve things by using Denso wiper blades which perform much better but the poor performance of the washer jets is well documented here. Maybe proper fan jets or plain jets would be worth a try.
