    you can buy good commercial grade trimmer line at most places that sell mowers even Wal Mart sells commercial trimmer line.

    I like the husq titanium. I get it at Lowes. I forget how much the big spool is. Maybe $30?? Someone posted the other day about $15 spools from somewhere......mowpart?

    Arrg, the titanium line sucks. It dosn't last nearly as long as the line I use. And of COURSE the stuff is in the garage and I can't remember the exact name of it... I get it a Lowes and it's pretty pricey, but it's great stuff! I'll look tomorrow and post back.

    The red pulverizor line at Walmart is thebest that I have used with theOregon Gator coming a close 2nd and the 3lb at Wal Mart is like $16 but grab a couple when you see them cause they will only order it 1 time per year mine just put their spring stuff out and I grabbed 3 rolls should last all season as far as the Titanium it doesnt come close to lasting as long and I have used it.

    #1 Wal Mart
    #2 Gator Square
    #3 Echo
    That ishow I rank them

    i agree the husky ti line is weak and the pulverizer line is good but the best for heavy duty trimming is arnold extreme-can get at lows

    Don't even give .95 a second thought, go to .105 and you'll be happier. I have been using .105 for a few years now and love it compared to the .95 stuff. BTW what type of trimmer did you buy?
