    095 all the time. I do a cemetary and a 40 acre complex with culverts, ditch areas, etc. There we switch out to 105

    Since i switched to Stihl FS250R's; which have just outperform all other weedeaters we have owned. THe FS250R has the power & torque at 40CC to run the .105 line, and it's worth it, no welding with .105 line less re-spooling. Some may say it's tough on tree bark, shrubs, fences etc, if you have no weedeater skills of course it's some mean line.

    I use .105 all the time. I just like the extra toughness on thick weeds.
