Well I settled on the Shindaiwa T-230 and I'm very pleased! What can the Pros tell me about trimmer line? I'm going to use .095 and I will be using it to do clean-up edging (occasionally hitting cement). I purchased a 1 lb. spool of "VERI" from landscapers supply and I'll see how it goes, but if there is a manufacturers line out that you like please post it for me and others to see. Also is it true this product dries out and becomes brittle? THANKS!!!!
