    It looks like some good stuff, just pricey. Does any one out there use this stuff. I love the blades made by this company.

    I do, AWESOME stuff. I change string 3 times less now than before. Yes, THREE times less. I can wrap it in the head anyway I want, it will not tangle. It's actually cheaper in the long run. Square is all I use.

    just bought some of the square stuff, too, and it does really rawk. I didn't even want to know how much it was before I bought it at my dealer, because I wouldn't have gotten it because of the high cost, but I will be buying it from now on. Just calculating the wasted trips to the trailer to respool is enough to convince me the higher grade lines are worth it. Anybody know if they make .080 in that, or can someone recommend a really good .080?

    I just couldn't seem to get a clean crisp cut from it. I ran a couple of heads through of it, and switched back over to the .095 round nylon line. I have trued a few different things, and always end up back to the .095 round.

    It's the longest lasting line that I have found! Well worth the money because it will save you so much time respooling your Trimmers.

    The down side to it though is that I found it wore through my eyelets on the trimmer heads compared to other line.
