I just bought 12 cheapo Home Depot spools (3#) on clearance for $15 each(can't recall the brand name at the moment). It outlasts my Echo, Stihl, Kawasaki, Shakespeare lines. At less than half the price of those others, it's a killer deal.

i use Lowes brand and its some good stuff.use it in the graveyard and it last longer.

I've been pleased with the .105 cyclone. Better than Stihl, IMO

The logic is that the square edges will slice through the grass easier.

I use the .105 Cyclone and dont have to change near as often as them offbrand lines. I use it on a stihl trimmer and i like it better than the sthil line that came with it

We are using some black stuff looks like liquorish. A local dealer recommended it and the guys love it. They say it dosen't get hung up or dig in causing scalp or burn marks. It has a braided look and its black, it looks smaller the the .095 we have always used.

for me i can move so much faster with square than round because the edges on the square are cutting through the blades quicker then the rounded over edge of the round . and i get a way cleaner cut , where as with round there'd be so many times ide go over a spot and the dull edge wouldnt cut it but rather lay it down . i'll never use round string again . and i soley whip the past 8 years doing over 100 lawns per week ,

Just stay with the gatorline mag square you already have the best. In my opinion of course.

My experience is with: Husky Titanium, John Deere I-Beam, Grass Gator (the worst of them all), Stihl X-cut and Oregon Gatorline Magnum

None even come close to the last!!

The coupon code 15offsept and ends on the 09/13/2008 and trimmer line is on the 15% off list... Also TAMADRUMMER!!! I have to plug FLUID FILM to you! if you dont have any fluid film we need to get some to you! and here is why! I have been playing drums for 31 years now... and I found that Fluid film in the kick pedal bearings and chain works great... BUT! if you have a cymbol that corroded and tarnished! Like many of us do! JUST SPRAY FLUID FILM ON IT!!! I have used sabian cleaner, brasso, you name it I have used it! sprayed fluid film on one and I could not believe it! It shined like a new penny! no scrubing! DO NOT SPRAY IT ON while ther over the kit though!!!! take them off and out side to do it. spray them and let set for a min or 2 til it stops bubbling then wipe it off with a grease rag and wear gloves cause it works fantastic but stinks like you wont believe! OH yeah! it wont harm the lettering on the cymbal at all...

Myself, I use .105 cyclone for the funeral home that I maintain, edges great. For my Husqvarna trimmer I use .095 Pulverizer in the big spools.

we use the grass gator .155 from home depot holds up good

I bought multiple spools of line from Home Depot as well. Its the commercial type, .105. I soaked them in some water and they seem to last longer, break less and overall seem tougher. Pretty good deal for $15/spool (normally $20) compared to $30-$55 for some of the other brands of line.

Echo Crossfire .95. It's always worked good for us. Of course I bought 25 rolls a few years ago from an LCO going out of business, so I really couldn't say if it's the best, but it works.

I currently use stuff that i got from the local jd place i have no clue as to what brand but it last a really long time. I spool my trimmer about once a week w/ this stuff,and about 3 xs a day w/ the echo stuff . I know i am being a little over particular but i bought this string because it was dark green and when it breaks off you don't see it in the yard vs the neon color string most use. However, i do wish it was square. If anyone on here knows of good square, dark green, or black string; and where to get it in the big spool, let me known please.

.080 round.

what is the difference in the square ane the round line?

The square makes a cool 'whir' sound that, at the right rpm,
sounds a little like a light sabre out of Star Wars.
