    I use the .095 square.

    I've heard some good things about the triangle line.

  3. Tried lots of brands and types, but I haven't tried any triangle stuff. But that Sufix stuff cuts like a surgeon. This stuff is twisted, but then again, so am I. Its supposed to be 10 x abrasion resistant (yeah, right), but it does stay flexible, which is key for me. I use the .095” diameter stuff, really slings some schidt.

    well I know I dont like Echo line...any of it...stopped at Lowes and got some Titanium line...dont remember the manufacturer...in the few times I've used it(cant trim when theres an inch over water every where we look!!!) I think I like it...we'll see.

    I've used the Echo line and didn't really care for it. It just didn't seem to last very long. I now just use line from Walmart and it seems to last a lot longer, cut just as well and is cheaper too. As far as the BEST line to use I say just try different types and decide what works the BEST for you. Good luck.

    Suffix (blue spiral line) , yes it can be a pain to wrap a spool, but lower noise; faster rpm's ; and makes my t-270 cut like a light saber.

    I ese the Echo line and it works. Haven't felt the need to try anything else.

    I've used the square line from RedMax.... pretty good stuff.....
    The Stihl line is also nice stuff........... I have used the Titanium Force line (from Husqvarna, I believe).... I wouldn't use it if it was given to me for free....... just disappears when trimming along stone/block, etc..... it is quieter, but who cares.
