the thicker the line the longer its going to last (in general) however thicker line will tear grass rather than slice it like thinner line will. torn grass will "yellow"

.080 for me, because my guys will break the string before tearing up a tree etc.

.95 Gator Line, lasts alot longer than the Echo Crossfire .95 I was using, doesnt seem to tear up tree's any worse than any of the other lines.

Red Max string is the best....095 is nice around houses, but the .105 and .115 is awesome on stones and stuff, lasts forever

I hate the echo trimmer head! miss my red max, pop it right in.
