We have tried it all but I still like the kind they sell at Wal-Mart. I know a lot of members here will not agree with me but each is to his own.

I use Tanaka .105 line. It takes a beating and keeps on trimming. I usually use one head full every other day....

Echo Cross-Fire .095

Good stuff but I like .105 better than .095.

080 round, thou I found a smallish spool of 095 square so I went ahead and ran that, and I have to admit I like the 'light-sabre' whirr it makes at the right rpm :laugh:
The 080 round just whistles or whizzes, the square whirrs, almost like a buzzing, sounds kinda electronic at times.

.095 Echo Crossfire here too. Haven't ever used anything else though so I couldn't compare it to anything. But it works good for me so I see no reason to switch.

The only line i will use is the Shakespeare Ultratwist .135. It lasts really well and is actually much more quiet than round or square line. Not to mention it cuts better.

Currently using echo crossfire 095. I like it ok. I think I like the husqvarna titanium better though. I am thinking about trying the heavier echo crossfire line to see how it does.

I bought a roll of the husqvarna titanium 095 two years ago and still using it. that stuff lasts forever.

How much is the walmart brand for a full spool. My helper goes through the .95 VERY fast. Someone mentioned some red line you can buy online. Does anyone have an online place the recommend for trimmer line, blades and echo string trimmer heads? I am looking to order in quantity and save some $ and time.

Right now using magnum gatorline .95 it lasts pretty long but doesnt cut too well. I was using rotary twisted line at .95 before and that stuff would cut great but wore horribly...one day I will find a decent line.

Husky .105 Titanium. Lasts forever. I put about 28 feet a spool and only 4-6 bumps a 1/3 acre yard trimming and edging.

I saw the gray husqvarna line looked good,thought the price was high,$12 for a 1# roll.
