    Very pleased ! Makes great guacamole !
    It holds up great on my fs 131r and vaporizes 3 ft tall + grass,bambo,sumac,burdock,etc as fast as I can swing it. It also feeds perfectly fine. I have about 4 acres to maintain and I tend to let the unmowable stuff grow out of control and usually end up having to use the poly cut blades in the past. I have melted or broke other line off in the head attempting to maintain this stuff but this stuff works great.plus I found myself taping the line feed 75% less.

    CF3 Pro String Trimmer, Simply THE BEST
    Up to this last week, I have used the Stihl,red, orange and green X string trimmer line and found the X line superior to the others. I just used my first spool of CF3 trimmer line, and all I can say is that it is amazing. This product extends the use of string trimmers by allowing you to cut trough thick weeds and heavy grass without the line breaking or the tool bogging down. It is especially useful when trimming up against foundations and rock walls. With the other lines, I was constantly ... read more advancing the line. CF3 is almost impossible to break, and it sharpens its ends instead of breaking when trimming next to abrasive walls. It comes in a small roll which is an inexpensive way to test it out.

    Tough Round Line Heavy Brush
    This line came on my trimmer and expectedly it works perfectly for my lawn care needs in Miami. Now with a move to a large property in North Carolina the needs have changed and the vegetation is tough and thick! I used this to cut through tall grass, very small saplings, and tree climbing vines that are choking the edges of the property! There are better tools for this kind of abuse, yes, but it handled this work as well without needing to change heads and cutting tools! Pretty tough stuff to ... read more handle that kind of out of scope work.

    0.105 Round Red Line best all round, won't eat your spools.
    I have the Combo string trimmer/pole saw, in constant use since 2012. It came with OEM 0.095 orange line.I was very glad to see the end of that spool. The 0.105 Round Red line reliably beats its way thru tough weed stems and doesn't eat the spool like most of the more magical high tech lines do, in my experience. Reliable performance. Resists welding itself together on the spool better that most I've tried.

    When only the best will do
    When u started my lawn company over 2 years ago we started with standard round commercial line and it was just ok. In an effort to improve time and avoid snagging and pulling on tough southern grasses we switched to pentagon and it did a lot better. Then after running through a spool of pentagon we tried the X-line! WOW! My lawn guys would be upset if I put a spool of round line or pentagon line on the trailer. Xline slices through weeds and tough grasses like butter. This not only saves us time ... read more but also improves in the area of fatigue because we are not fighting the equipment in tough. The shape of the like requires you do a really good job of winding the trimmer head spool. If you don't it will pinch and not feed properly. This takes practice. Overall my crew and I will only use Xline (.105) from here on out and the new hires don't realize how good they have it from when we used to use round line.

    X-Line is my favorite
    I have used them all , there is none better than the hi-vis yellow X-Line .095 X-Line last longer than other brands , cuts smooth and makes it very easy to hold the trimmer at the proper height , without scalping. Thanks Stihl !!

    Great Trimmer Line
    I have a habit of buying different brands and types of line for our trimmers- I've tried them all- Gator-Black Diamond-Ugly, but this is one of my favorites. The X-Line cuts grass as well as small saplings- you can hear and feel the string tearing into the weeds. Also it doesn't fuse together in the spool like others do.

    Good line
    At work we use an octagon line not stihl brand with a 130r trimmer there's times a feel it doesnt cut good enough. But with this premium round line in my 56 trimmer i dont feel it lacking anything in cutting normal trimmed areas. But only down fall ive noticed it doesn't work on woody weeds that arent cut regularly. So if your only trimming weekly-biweekly area this is a good line for the money.

    Clean Cutting Round Line
    When the Orange line ran out on my spools after some really tough cutting on the new property I replaced it with a smaller diameter .080 line that has proven to be surgical while using it. The cut is nice and clean where the broad sword of the thicker line caused a bit of a tougher cut to the grass. If you drag the thinner line in the dirt, along concrete or into thick vegetation it will scrub away quicker, but for trimming up the thinner stuff is perfect and the premium line seems to function ... read more on the spool without much fuss as all. I like the quality and performance of the line thus far and honestly can’t say a negative thing about it. It performs as expected and then some.

    .08 stihl trimmer string
    Best string on the market. I have bought other string and had to restring every job if not more. Switched to stihl's .08 string and with only one wound I did 8 different properties with running out and I still don't have to rewind.

    Great Trimmer Line
    Have been using the Pentagon line for years in.095 size with AutoCut 25 head. The pentagon line cuts faster and is more aggressive than round line. Just switched to the .105 size line, better cutting than the .095 and last much longer. Check your cutter head to see if you can use the larger size line. You'll spend less time reloading the spool. I have 40 acres and spend about 2 hours a week trimming, so not having to reload the spool or tap to extend the line as often is a great help.

    Great for grass clearing
    The quiet line is great for clearing normal and thick grass, but not for brush. This line is also very well constructed to you do not have to bump out new line every time you use your string trimmer.
