    The soaking makes the nylon line more flexible so it doesn't break as often.

    i use Oregon .105 the big spool. works well and last a long time. I always keep some in my pocket to eliminate the trip to the truck to refill.

    well i tried the rhino tuff and i have to say it does work good but it's not as tough as the rotary diamond cut line. the rotary line is the same .095 but it's bigger around than the rhino tuff .095. it's almost .105 by the way it looks. it is just a tough line that i may only have to bump 3-4 times on a lawn. the rhino line i may have to bump 5-6 times. the rhino line is fine for just normal trimming but doing things like edging or really thick weeds the rotary line is much better.

    I use round 0.95 line from laser. About $35 for 5 lbs. I don't like any square, triangle or other angular lines, as I find they catch the air too much, causing turbulence and not giving a sharp cut.
