    Depends which trimmer. I use .95 on my Echo SRM-210's & .105 on my 230s & bigger.

    I've always run Gator Magnum round or square in .095", but when the last of the GM is gone, I'm gonna be starting in on the spool of Echo Crossfire that I picked up at the very end of last season. The .095" seems to do everything I need it to do including edging, so I'll probably stick with it.

    I use .095 Echo Crossfire as well. I tried others but like the Crossfire best.

    Yep. HD, Lowe's, outdoor power dealers etc. I have found them all to be about the same price too.

    I have always been exremely happy with GM, but after reading so many positive things about Crossfire here on LS, I thought I'd give it a try. If I have bad luck, you can bet I'll say so here too.:)
