Throttle is smoother than the FS90R and I have to admit it takes some getting used to since its more sensitive than a two stroke but it sips fuel compared to the Echo SRM-230.
Wow bother! I don't know what Echo you were using and how it was bad enough to loose lawns over it. If it ran and it had string in it I'd think you should have been able to keep a customer happy even if it took a little extra time.
As far as the FS100RX goes I'm glad it works for you. I wouldn't use one if someone gave me one for free.
