    We bought our last large roll from Lowes. .095

    The line seems to work well!

    We would probably buy our next one their as well!

    i used to use redmax and echo. the redmax was good, but the echo was terrible. I then tried the husky line from lowes, titanium i think its called, it last very long and is very manageable

    I really like the .095 shakespeare from walmart, I don't care for their other stuff. I also like the .095 echo stuff but its a bit pricey.

    I bought a roll, had to be 2,000-3,000 ft., from my dealer. Was a busted roll, so I picked it up for $75.00. Had the kids out in the shop for the last 2 weeks untangling that mess. Good news is that I won't have to buy anymore for a very long time. Don't know the name brand, but it's green, and is square, not round, and is .095.
