    We have been using the Husky Titanium .95 line for the past 5 years or so. It has worked very well for us, but I was curious as to what each of you use and what your thoughts are on the best line out there.

    We currently are running 8 RedMax 2600's and 1 FS-110 from Stihl.

    I used to use that. Then I changed to the stuff from J-Thomas.....the square line. Think it's called optimum. It's a LOT better.

    I run Rhino-Tuff Square, size .095 in my stihl KM-110R and love it. A full trimmer spool lasts me 3 weeks. I can trim 2-3 houses before I even have to bump it. Great stuff.

    I use echo cross fire line. Works great especially when you get the precut pieces for rapid loader. The line cuts great. Before I got the rapid loader I tried a bunch of different line and echo was the best.
    Just my 0.2

    We used the echo x-fire for many years and then switched to the titanium about 5 years ago. And found it to be far superior to the echo x-fire. It just depends on what your trimming and type grass I guess.

    Thanks for all the replies and I think we'll try some of the J. Thomas stuff and the gatorline.
