    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!

    Two thumbs up...and a whistle!
    Without a doubt, CF3 Pro can’t be beat. I bought a KM131R last year and purchased Quiet Line for the Trimmer Attachment. I have about 400 feet of aluminum fence to trim every week, both sides. The Quiet Line kept snapping off at the trimmer head forcing me to rethread the line. I tried to change my technique and be as careful as possible not to hit the fence. I would stop and feed every 10 feet or less. I soaked the line in water all week thinking it may be too dry and brittle. Nothing worked. ... read more Thought about buying a less powerful Stihl trimmer thinking the KM 131R just has too much power for an aluminum fence. Finally bought a spool of CF3 Pro and tried it. Trimmed the entire fence without snapping the line once. Couldn’t believe it. This line is almost indestructible. The only downside is that I have a spool of Quiet Line that I will now never use.

    best trimmer line I have ever used
    I am 72 years old and have used a lot of trimmers and trimmer line. I bought my first Stihl trimmer 30 years ago. Now all my out door power tools are Stihl. I bought this line 2 years ago and it will be the only line I will use. Give it a try and you will never look back, Jim

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 !!

    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.

    Best there is!
    I have tried several types of commercial line in many shapes and configurations. I cut 3+feet tall grass, star thistle, bull thistle, blackberries, and many other weeds. I cut right to the ground, so I am in the rocks and dirt a lot. This line is consistently the best. Since I not longer play the experiment game, (trying new products all the time), I buy a large roll of this about every year and a half. This line is like my 055 trimmer, it just keeps working efficiently.

    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.

    Cuts well, and is quiet compaired to others
    Wears slow, quiet, and feeds good thru head. No issues

    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.

    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.
