    I came across this thread by searching the site today (had to register to do so).

    We are running out of line and I need to buy some. I am getting tired of paying $27 for 3 lbs. of extruded nylon, what a ripoff (Royal Edger here in Clearwater is about $27 for 3# spool, diamond cut .095). Although it is good stuff.

    Searching online I found a lot of stuff that was actually priced higher. Especially when you factor in the shipping.

    Doing a little maths (watch out! :laugh:), I came up with the following (from the above info, plus some of my own research):

    Place              #s   price    price per #
    10 at a time        5   $28.63   $5.73
    13# roll           13   $75.00   $5.77
    FIS                 3   $17.95   $5.98
    mowpart.com         5   $37.75   $7.55
    Royal               3   $27.00   $9.00
    So, guys buying 10 at a time or the 13 pound roll are doing pretty good. Guy buying from FIS is not doing much worse, and sounds like you can buy one roll at a time at that price. I will have to call them and see if it's still good.

    Anyone else know any other sources online (or elsewhere)? I might be willing to buy a case or other larger quantity if the price was good enough.
