    makes trimming the cemeterys much easier
    The CF3 PRO LINE makes Trimming the cemeterys lots more easier for me because I don't have a lot of down time putting in trimmer line the cf3 pro line lasts me up to 70 percent longer than other lines ive used a great product . I have made a ecommendation to STIHL USA to start selling this line CF3PRO LINE on the 3 and 6 LB SPOOLS it would be a big seller .

    Great trimmer line
    I purchased a spool of .105 CF3 Pro trimmer line a few months back to test and compare to other trimmer lines I use on a regular basis. This trimmer line stacks up very well when compared to other .105 line I have used in the past and this CF3 Pro line has become a favorite of mine. I've used it to maintain weekly lawns all the way to cutting heavily overgrown and matted grass and weeds. When you pair this line with a Stihl trimmer you have a very unbeatable pair. You do have to be careful ... read more around fence posts and other wood items as the line is aggressive enough to dig in and scar up the wood. Otherwise there is no reason not to buy this trimmer line.

    Lovely Line for the Tough Stuff!!
    I picked up some of the CF3 Pro line for my FS131 R trimmer to tackle some of the really tough trimming conditions on my property. Here we have the dreaded Kudzu vines. Thorn bushes, Saplings and all forms of “softer” brush and grass. Happily this cuts very well through all of the tasks quite well... I think this has to do with what seems to be the multiple facets on the edge of the line where the different plastic “colours” come together. It appears to give it more cutting edges that are finer ... read more for the delicate stuff and really dig into the thougher stuff. I’m liking the line much better than my smaller “green” round line since it seems to last longer and cuts better due to those facets. It is more expensive but it works quite well. Also I have not had any feed issues in the trimmer head while using it so possibly the other reviews that identified it as having fees issues could have been due to how it was wound? Either way, it’s performed flawlessly for me and I will be buying it again when I manage to burn through this pack!!! It’s now a fixture in my arsenal!

    Better performance than square line
    I used square line it is also good but this pentagon line is better for cutting heavy grass

    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 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.

    Certainly better than the OEM line shipped with the trimmer
    I researched all types of trimmer lines online and settled on the x-line for two reasons. Stihl makes it themselves in the USA and the price for a 280 foot spool of .095 was very reasonable. It will take me years to go through the entire clamshell. The line is very tough and I did my entire yard with only three "bumps" to feed a few extra inches. It cuts heavy vegetation like a steel blade.

    Increase your Yardage Per Gallon.
    This is the best line I've ever used. Bought this for my new FS90 after I used up the Quite line that came on it. No comparison the X Line cuts twice as fast. Is tough will blow thru waist high grass and black berries with only a single pass. But with normal trimming it increased the amount of Yardage I can cut on a tank by nearly double. And it is quite durable when used near fencing and rocks. But be very careful near underpinning it will easily blow thru it. Oops!

    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 sting
    Have used many types of trimmer sting in my day and when I bought my fs70 it came with the trimmer and I thought it was going to be a joke like most sting that comes with a trimmer but no this line is tough I can edge along walk ways and drive ways of my clients homes and my home and not have to replace it I was cutting through thick weeds and still did not have to replace it.

    Tough line for a tough trimmer
    So we relocated to a wooded area with the dreaded Kudzu vines.. these are tenacious vines that strangle the trees and we are working to eradicate them from the property. Normally, my FS131R is on grass duty but when we went for the thick stuff... all I had was my orange line and the torque monster trimmer. Honestly a blade would have been a better bet, but not an option that Sunday. Nevertheless the “Quiet Line” cuts well, holds up to some pretty wretched abuse and is just as easy to use and ... read more feed from the spool as any. Now yes it gets caught up in the really thick vines, but the smaller stuff it managed to clip through in a few passes... pretty tough! I’m not completely sold on the “quite” feature but I am sold on the toughness! Not the cheapest line, but worth it in my opinion!

    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.
