    I've only run into a few inferior string trimmer lines over the years, most certainly Echo is going to make an effort to be better than some offerings. Good to hear, if I'm in a position to try their line I'll do what I always do: Buy a small spool and give it a whirl (pseudo-pun fully intended):D

    I will not buy echo line, it lasts such a short time. I go with Gator line with solid core, or with Oregon Trillium Star line. Both last much longer then Echo in my experience.

    This has been my experience also. I find that a cheap round line lasts me longer than the Echo line ever did.

    I won't use echo line anymore. It would jam and get tangled in the trimmer head. I was constantly having to respool it.

    The Echo Crossfire line is the best that I have evert used.

    Switched several years ago and will never go back..

    Great trimmers and great line!

    I love the Echo Crossfire line. I use .8 on my regular trimmer, and .95 on my trimmer with an Edgit.

    Iuse the .95 echo myself, and had good results. I'm always trying different lines but never heard of gator line, I will have to give it a try.

    Have been using Echo Crossfire for many years. Never had a problem with it. Last a long time. (keep mine in the refridgerator, ............submersed in water)

    I am very pleased with Echo Crossfire 095. I have tried many different lines and I really like the clean cut of Crossfire. I have never had a problem with the line welding on the spool.
