Found a Deal On Trimmer Cord

Hey guys and gals, just wanted to share something I found with you while on the ole inner web flea bay. I don't know how good it is but it's cheap enough to try. If it's still there when I run through my 2 big roles I'm gonna grab some. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Yellow-Trimm...item4ac17d05e7

That's not really that great of a deal and it's .080 round. I would keep looking

That's what I'm thinking.

Hey throw that link up for the J Thomas stuff. I didn't know this wasn't any good, was just trying to help. I just calculated the weight to length ratio because it was .80 and new it would be a lot of line.

Thanks for the link. However, I'd have to agree with others, that's only .080 line that wouldn't last long in the real world. Most new trimmers come standard with at least .095 cord. In fact, I started using .105 cord several yrs ago and noticed a dramatic difference in decreased line consumption.
