    I love my straight shaft. I'll never go back to a curved shaft trimmer again

    just bought a new kawasaki a few days ago so far so good it's alot quieter than I'm used to. Does anybody use support straps or have any neck or back pain weedeating very much at a time??

    Straight the only way.....

    Just went from a Weedeater Curved to a Stihl FS 90R....

    All I can say is OMG.

    So much easier to work with and so much more power.

    Of course I realize that is a major brand upgrade as well,

    but I will never go back to curved shaft again.
