Solid or flex shaft for trimmer?

I picked up a barely used Stihl FC110 edger the other day, and plan to use it primarilly as a trimmer since I have no use for another edger at the moment. It will be used with a standard trimmer head, and occationally with a cultivator and pole saw head. I have both the solid shaft that the edger came with, and a flex shaft from an older trimmer that I have. My question is which one is best for my intended uses or does it really matter.

Solid shaft is heavier but flex shat is only reccomended for line use. I have a flex shat stihl for trimming and a 95 with solid shaft for edging and use with blades.

Thanks for the replies. I will stick with the solid shaft since I will be using it for more than just trimming.
