    Echo, I heard freezing the line makes it stronger, so I tried it and seemed to be weaker, so I won't be doing that anymore.

    I've tried lots of differents kinds, and I like the .105 Echo crossfire best.

    If you’re using a weedwacker then you probably should use the weedwacker made string, if you’re using any other brand TRIMMER I would recommend using titanium string from Lowes. We have been using it for about 3 years and love it. We use .105

    TurfGro is some strong line.

    It's two separate lines braided together.

    Soaked in water...I hardly bump feed my head anymore.

    My neighbor buddy has some of that...I found it wasn't as good as my turfgro...

    But then again, he never soaked it. It's actually soaking as we speak. I'll try some out on thursday, and give my opinion on it then.

    As of now, I swear by that turfgro.
