The flow rate seems to be nice and even but the pattern was bad. Some would spray a partial cone and one was spraying a split cone. They didn't look nice and even.

The cone quality can be felt (and appreciated) mainly at idling and when
cold, although a broken cone is result of particles been stuck at the
seat, so the injectors with bad spray cone always leak to some extent.
If the leak is significant, it should be cleaned, preferably by reverse
method. In your case it seems, a good in-tank cleaner on regular
intervals should do the trick.
