    Just got an Edgit for my Sthil trimmer. Going to give it an honest try.

    The question is "Does one brand of line perform better than others with Edgit?"

    I normally use Sthil round line .095

    Thanks

    I have found the best for it is Shakesphere .095 twisted line. And I have tried about all of them.

    Echo line outlasts sthil by far after 25 years i've tried alot of different brands. Also keep your line in a bucket of water that makes it last even longer.

    Echo line is good, I've tried it in .080 and .095 but doesn't compare to Shakesphere twisted .105.

    Shakesphere twisted .105 is = about .080 in a round line due to the twisted nature. Cuts cleanly/very quietly, lasts a long time. All important with the Edgit.

    Gotta go with ECHO. It lasts and provides great results.
