Is there a noticable difference between .095 and .105?

Yes, absolutely, from any one size to another, even if it's just a step up or down the difference is rather noticeable.

seems like .095 is the most popular, I wonder why more don't use the .105

The .105 is great if you are trimming up against very rough edges like iron fences etc, but other than that it has been my experience that it is overkill for normal maintenance of the turf I care for.

The plus of the .095 is that you get more per spool as it is sold by lb, you do not have to reline the spool as often as you get more on the spool with each re-load and it does a good enough job even on iron fences etc that it is a much more economical choice in cost of material and labor spent reloading the line. I do not think I will be going back to anything but the .095 for awhile. My first post in this thread was shortly after trying the .105 and at this time I do not see a need to try it in the near future.

In a somewhat related note, I mentioned that I picked up edger blades too, I get a case of 50 untreated for $36 at the same location. What is everyone paying for edger blades?
