Default Weed Trimmer Line

What line lasts the longest for edging between pine needles and grass? I'm using heavy duty titanium line and it is crap. I have to respool several times each time I trim. Is it the trimmer (Husquarvana) or the line? I never had this problem with my old Ryobi but I don't have the same line as I did then.

I'm ready to throw this thing in the lake!

I would think line diameter has a lot to do with it. I have one trimmer that uses .105 "commercial grade" that looks like twisted liquorish. It's not self feeding (precut 16" lengths), but it lasts a long time. I cut vines, thick weeds, grass and light woody brush without a problem.

I have another trimmer that is self feeding and uses .095 line and that seems to last OK. My ex had a light weight trimmer that used .05 line and that was worthless.

I've been using Grass Gator shaped line. It works pretty well.

What's the deal with those things that you can swap out the line with one of those things where you can just snap the individual lines in? Anyone have one of those?

I use Oregon blades on my mower, last 3X's longer than factory blades. Bought them on ebay, they were 1/2 the $ of factory.
