I always used to buy trimmer line from the Echo dealer for about $13.00 a spool. Untill I was at walmart one day and saw a huge spool of it for $12.00, and I swear it lasts almost as long. Now thats where i always get it.

used to use it few years ago and liked it, but then it changed or something one year and it started eating the aluminum eyelets up on my stihl super 20-2. theyed last 2 weeks b4 line wore them in half. been using stihl .95 and doing ok. new fs110 chews it up quick so trying 1.05 stihl and husqvarna ti line now. i heard you can soak line in water couple days to make it last longer.

The red colored Weedeater brand is really good line for the money. It is really flexable and last quite awhile.

I found the same thing. The orange .95 line with a hexagon shape, can't remember the brand, but I was surprised at the durability. Best line I ever bought. I'm still on the same reel, I hope I can find the same thing again, cause I have bought allot of line that was crap compared to this stuff.
