This is how I always rolled.
But with this Honda having some extra cajones over my Stihl FS-80...I'm strongly thinking of leaving it on.

HD was a no go for this Gator Platinum Super Twist.
I'm in the experimental mood these days since my old fave line (also a twisted line) will NOT work in this Honda. It comes with a stock Honda head which to me is very similar to an Echo head.

So, I need to try a small pack of any line to make sure it won't weld to itself. So far, ALL round lines have worked well, but some are more durable than others.

Echo Crossfire, Probably better out there but don't like to hunt for it. Just pick up a spool every now and then. Oh lets start the soaking in water thread!

Why bring it up if you don't believe in it unless you just are bored and want to start a pissing match?

Wait, are you telling me that people soak their trimmer line in water for some reason?

I didn't realize how crappy it was until I tried something else. The Echo Crossfire lasts much longer and cuts tougher vegetation.

I did try a sample spool of Oregon string and it was pretty amazing. I can't recall what the name of it was, but it's blue and "edged/twisted". I kept the packaging so I could ask for the right stuff if I decided to get more.

Yup. That's it. I went and looked for the package today.
I asked my dealer if they carry it and he said "No, that stuff's expensive."

Whatever. That's what the interwebs are for. I can always order it if I want more.

Oh, well then I'm sorry.

So many get all wound up over whether or not that works. I can't remember everyone who pee'd in the pot last time and didn't know if you were serious.

I know what you are saying. It is funny to read how people get so wound up. I always think man, live and let live.
