    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.

    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.

    Handles tombstones well
    I've trimmed approximately 16 hours with this line. It's loads better than the other brands I've used at standing up to the abuse of trimming around 400+ tombstones. Only one other line (square) lasted longer but it is also heavier and messed up the trimmer spool. The CF3 Pro is almost as tough but is lighter weight, doesn't stress my trimmer, and costs less. I highly recommend this line.

    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.

    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 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.

    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.

    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.
