    I have a always ran .095 line in 5lbs spools for around $20 at my local bomgaars store. Better deal when they offer 17% off and i buy 3-4 spools of line.

    They no longer carry the spools. I have a few samples from the GIE show this past fall and they are RINO-TUFF .095 and GATORLINE .095. The RINO is ok but I like my other line better. I have not yet used the GATORLINE but will try that out tomorrow after a day long rain delay and 3 inches of water.

    What do you guys use? Do you order it? Dealer? Local farm supply store (like me)

    I do a cementary and a 40 acre complex. There we switch the line to one grade heavier - forget the numbers though.

    Keep in mind if trimmer cord sits around it can get brittle so I tend to stick with dealer stuff.

    .095 echo line in large spool. Works well and I use so much of it that the line never has a chance to get brittle. :usflag:

    I bought a new Red Max trimmer. It had some red line in it that looked like a licorice twist. I'd like to know where to get some. It cut good, and lasted a looooong time.

    I just bought a big spool of the red twisted. It is made by redmax and i got it from my redmax dealer. Good stuff so far. If your redmax dealer doesnt carry it just ask him to maybe they will order some.
