Echo, I heard freezing the line makes it stronger, so I tried it and seemed to be weaker, so I won't be doing that anymore.

I've tried lots of differents kinds, and I like the .105 Echo crossfire best.

If you’re using a weedwacker then you probably should use the weedwacker made string, if you’re using any other brand TRIMMER I would recommend using titanium string from Lowes. We have been using it for about 3 years and love it. We use .105

TurfGro is some strong line.

It's two separate lines braided together.

Soaked in water...I hardly bump feed my head anymore.

My neighbor buddy has some of that...I found it wasn't as good as my turfgro...

But then again, he never soaked it. It's actually soaking as we speak. I'll try some out on thursday, and give my opinion on it then.

As of now, I swear by that turfgro.

I have never soaked mine, I am almost out of string, I might just try turfgro

the sun and or dry conditions will make your line brittle and weak.

soaking it makes the line stronger and whip through grass and other things without having to feed line out nearly as much.

any brand square ive ever used ive liked , most recently kawasaki pro cut and oregon gator line both at .80

and i dont care about brittle / breaking line because its a cheap item .
and the hard / dry / brittle line cuts best , as oposed to line i soaked in water which yes was more supple and thusly lasted longer but didnt cut as clean so i had to go back over alot of areas , and for me thats NO GOOD

This is the best we have found too, my guys love it. I think the type of turf and the edge height might come into play. We mow Bermuda very short and the turf is dense/thick. The square line grabs the turf and digs in causing bare spots but not this stuff.

I don't get the soaking thing, I don't think plastic absorbs much water. Do you keep it in a bucket of water all the time or just for a day or so before you put it on the rig? Ours obviously gets very dry here. I just bought another spool our last one lasted us a year.

Just try soaking the braided stuff overnight and restring your trimmers...you'll easily tell the difference.

BTW...we just soaked a spool of Redmax string...tried it today and was much stronger.

I don't know about all that but the reason I spray my .080 round down with some
oil is that it keeps it from getting *(&%^'d up inside the spool head.

I use echo .95 mostly but huquvarna makes a braided line with titanium in it that is very strong but a bit costly
