    When putting new line in your trimmers - straight or curve shaft - do you guys use one string or strings out of the end of the trimmer?

    Notice our guys do it both ways. Some like one line coming out and others like two? Just curious with you guys!

    I always thought it was either 2 or 4 pieces and whether it was Pre cut or spooled?

    LOL the only trimmer I've ever seen use 1 string was a Ken and Barbie 80-dollar craftsman POS.

    For everything else 2 (or 4) lines creates balance, and since on an Echo you can't run one line maybe buy a few Echo trimmers for the wise guys running one line thou I'm sure they would be the ones would figure out how to run one line out of an echo.
