What size trimmer line and brand do you use to create the best edge??? I like to use Stihls .95 line for my trimmer. :D

Echo Crossfire .105 I think the .105 being a little thicker increases the time between re-loads.

This has been discussed many many times. There is always a majority who like the .095 because of the quality of cut. I agree. The .105 is just too big and blunt. You don't get that clean, crisp cut of the smaller string.

husquavarnas .095 titanium works the best and my co-workers say the same.
not sure what it is but it seems to cut smoother or something

I agree. I love the husq titanium force line. Lasts a good long time. I havent tried the echo crossfire yet but I get the titanium line for nearly free and no probs with it. .095 is What im using now. There is some smaller Diameter relifes in the line (dunno if that helps) but it doesnt tend to dig in or grab like some of the other lines at lower speeds around chainlink and doesnt break as fast around headstones and such. Im still going to test the Echo crossfire when I run out this time

Switched to Echo Crossfire .095 this year and like it a lot. Lasts a good long time as well.

.095 Diamond edge for awhile than went back to cross fire. Left a better edge and used less line.
