Should I change trimmer line size/type?

Im wondering if there is anything dramatically better out there. Currently on my FS 80R I'm using Husqvarna Titanium force .105 line. Just wanted to see what everybody else uses.

I use ultra-cut from shakespeare in the .95 round. It seems to hold up well andI get good results from it. I havent tried any other brands to know if they are better or not. I should say I have tried some 105 line but it didnt seem to trim good, it wanted to chew off the grass and not trim it. Im considering trying some .80 line to see how it does. All the line I tried was the Ultra-cut

I prefer thinner line seems to cut cleaner, yeah you use a little more but it cuts faster and cleaner........(.95 or smaller).

.95 is probably the most popular. That what I have always used.
