    A friend gave me this stuff called XTREME, it's square trimmer line. Haven't had to restring my head yet, just wondering if anybody has tried this..??

  2. I love that trimmer line that Echo makes,(crossfire?)it is sort of shaped like an X and I love it , I have used the square stuff too once u use it u`ll never go back to round line.

    and once you use gator magnum trimmer line, you will never consider another brand. I usually respool every 8 hours. With the gator magnums, i am able to go for at least 16 hours. No lie. Very heavy duty, so much so that i have to carry a knife with me solely for cutting the excess line.

    Agreed that round line is not that great. Doesn't cut weeds well and seems almost like the ones with square edges semi-mulch clippings like gator blades almost! lol. The round line more or less punches through stuff like a dull mower blade vs. the squared stuff gives an even cut. Seems like cutting thick brush the round line does better though but I can't explain it. Maybe it just has more structural integrity.

    Anyone used the Husqvarna titanium line and if so is it any good? I have some that was given to me and once I use up my Crossfire line I will give it a try.

    I have been using the titanium line... it was alright, but tended to weld a bit...

    Today was the first test for the new Gator line... and, let's just say "I won't be going back to titanium!" That Gator is pretty good stuff... :)

    Listen to Mac... He won't steer you wrong!

    Good Luck, Clay

    I bought a roll of titanium line and ended throwing it away. I put it on my trimmer and ended up throwing what was left in the spool away too. STICK WITH THE GATOR LINE!!! You won't be dissatisfied, especially if you trim in fence or against concrete. Plus, gator is not the most expensive line. Look for anybody who sells mower parts from silver streak and you can get the line.
