    I posted this question on the other forum and got no response. Does anyone have one and if so are they any good.

    This probably doesn't help, but I have the 261 and it is excellent. A little heavier than others, but works great.

    I have the 242. I like the system for reloading and it also easily releases line. I wish it was a little easier to start. It takes 3 to 6 pulls which isn't a lot but my shindiawa blower and stick edger start on the first pull just about every time.
