    Been using .080 from Landscaper pro, just wondering if something's better?

    i like the octagon or square cut line...i've never tried spiral but that round line sucks because it doesn't cut as well. i always use .095.

    i have some redmax square cut line and the octagon/hexagon i dunno what brand it is...just says commercial grade trimmer line...i think i got it at lowe's or somewhere

    I switched to .105 Redmax braided. It's pretty dang good stuff. I used stihl x-line last year and the redmax is a ton better, and doesn't stick together as much.

    Trying Shindaiwa 0.80" silent twist line this year. Anything is better than the round 0.80" Echo line I used last year.

    .105 echo line, but I had .95 and that was good too

    I've found that Echo's round line fray's to easily.

    .095 husky titanium is the best I've used. Lasts a while and cuts great.

    not ignorance but experience! . i have used both and they suck big time. anyone who recommends either hasnt found the right line yet. the twisted stuff j thomas sells is decent but the best was grass gator . of course home depot dosnt sell it anymore. stick with regular line twisted line offers no advantage. in fact its less durable than normal line
