    Please Help!!!!

    I posted in another section but got only one reply!

    I have been in business for several years and had a friend give me a generous amount of .105 unifit trimmer line and was a very strudy line. I have since ran out and recently bought a spool of .105 ECHO line and I am not impressed with this line at all. It does not last long on a chain link fence.

    I have searched and searched online for the unifit line and found that Northern Tool used to carry it but the UNIFIT company is no longer in business therefore I am unable to find this particular line.

    So I guess after all this rambling I need some suggestions on line that has worked well for you all..... I am running an ECHO trimmer and would prefer a much sturdier line than that of ECHO.

    Anyones suggestions would be greatly appreciated....

    I have been using the Husquavarna titanium line 0.95" lately. I use it against brick buildings and chain link fences. It lasts at least 2x longer than regular line.

    I appreciate the response.

    I am very unsatisfied with the ECHO line. It does not last long at all and I thought was relatively expensive.

    I actually saw that exact line today and nearly picked up a roll of it but did not know how good it was.

    I appreciate your opinion.

    No contest!
    Nothing beats the Husqy .095 in a bump feed.

    For the high wheel string mowers, the Aramid core Oregon square .155 is awesome.
