    Picked me up one of these and i am starting to like it, but there has to be a better way of threading it. How do you guys thread them?? And while talking about them, how do you all liek them??

    I use one and can't wait to get something different! After 2 houses you have to change the line unless you want to trim your 3rd house w/ a half inch of line. I can't wait to "bump" out more line. At the end of the day, the bed of my truck is full of ten 4" pieces of wasted line (3 1/3 feet!)

    rjcjr, get an echo rapid loader. it has just about the same profile as the fixed but is a lot easier to load.

    as for stringing a fixed line head, I cut a length as long as my arm and tie a knot in the center and slip it through and repeat for other side.

    oh yeah, I like my fixed line head a lot but I like my rapid loader a little more because of the convenence.
