    Anyone using the square Gator Magnum Trimmer Line? If so, what do you think of the line? I've heard it outlasts the round trimmer line and it cuts better. Also, do you have any idea how much this line costs? Thanks!

    SEARCH Feature is a great tool on LS, where you will find tons of information on this as it has been discussed many, many, many times.

    I have used it for the last 3 years. I do like it compared to other line. But it does have some drawbacks. If your eye's on your trimmer head are not metal, it will wear through them fast and it can get stringy to the point where it will not cut the grass with a nice clean cut.

    Other than that, I recommend it

    Troy, Do you mean the eyelets on the outside of the trimmer head or the eyelets on the spool? Sorry if this sounds like a dumb question.

    on the trimmer head. If it is plastic they can almost melt that area really bad I noticed.

    But in general I recommend all eye holes on trimmer heads to be metal
