The best line I've used yet -- but don't soak it
Date:May 20, 2012
"First, let's put this review in context. I live on an acreage that was suffering from a severe lack of maintenance in the past. I use commercial grade equipment, and even so I admit freely that a lot of what I do to it constitutes abuse. It takes a truly superior product to get 5 stars from me, and this line makes the cut (rimshot).
Does the unique cross-section really make it "Lo-Noiz"? I don't know, and don't care -- I wear hearing protection when using my gas trimmer and the neighbours are far enough away that nothing short of a massed tank battle on my property would get their attention. I love this line because although it's no more expensive than average, it cuts through anything short of a fencepost and lasts practically forever. I've used it to rescue neglected shelter belt trees from sweet clover that was literally 2 meters tall and as thick as my thumb, and to scour a meter-wide circle in the ground around those trees right down to bare dirt . . . about the only way to stop the clover and alfalfa long enough to get some mulch down. I've also used it to trim along a high-tensile woven wire fence that hadn't been trimmed in so long the bottom was embedded in the ground, making it impossible to run the trimmer below the bottom wire. In that situation it's inevitable that the trimmer line will encounter the fence wire; with this line there's a good chance that it won't break.
The only downside to this line is that you absolutely CANNOT soak it in water. Soaking trimmer line in water for 24 hours before use is often recommended because the nylon line will absorb moisture, making more pliable and longer lasting. I found out the hard way that soaking this line makes the tiny ridges that give it a spiral shape fuse together in the spool and prevent the line from feeding. If the line won't feed it will eventually just break at the point where it exits the spool; if it does manage to feed it will break off at the weakened area where the ridges were welded against the next layer of line.
I soaked my first package of this line overnight and the next day was quite the ordeal as I had to repeatedly open the spool, pry the fused spots apart with a screwdriver, and pull more line out by hand. At least half of that first spool was lost to breakage and even so it lasted an amazingly long time. Several times I thought I'd finally used up all the wet line, but when I opened the spool I found that it had just broken off and there was plenty left.
Fortunately, the "welding" only happens when the wet line is wound tightly in the spool, and heated up by friction as the trimmer is used. The remainder of that package I soaked worked fine after being removed from the bucket and dried out for a few days. I've also used it on wet grass and even in the rain, with no adverse effects; in fact the line lasts even longer since the water lubricates the cutting end of the line and doesn't get into the spool itself."
