The black diamond seems to cut better but doesn't last as long in my opinion.

The black diamond line is quality, however it still doesn't match up to the Echo Cross Fire line. I've never had to use anything else than the cross fire line. It works for everything I have ever needed and then some.

I have tried the ECHO Black Diamond line and it was fantastic! I did notice that it runs out a little faster than the ECHO Crossfire, which is my favorite line! I just bought some more ECHO Crossfire to get ready for Spring!

I have been using Gator magnum .105 for about 4yrs and works great for blending, edging, etc. I recently tried the Gator Line super twist .095 after I read many reviews of people liking it. I should have saved my money and stuck with ole trusty. The super twist is horrible! It doesn't last when doing the simplest tasks. I mainly cut centipede, St. Aug, and zoysia which is much different than the lighter northern turf but it should still be able to hold up.

My go to line is the Oregon Platinum Gatorline Supertwist in .095. Great all around line. Good for grass and not too brittle for edging.

For just trimming grass it's Black Diamond for sure. Sharpest line I have used.

I got the chance to try the black diamond trimmer cord last season. At first I didn't like it because I couldn't see it and I was use to being able to After a couple uses I fell in love with it. It cuts great and it lasts longer than the trimmer cord we usually use.

I use the Black Diamond and like it. For everyday cutting, trimming, and edging I've had no complaints about the Tuff Stuff. Cuts through everything and doesn't break on me when edging. Echo was the biggest garbage I used. Oregon was pretty good, stihl was decent.
In general, here I found good reviews https://bestyardproducts.com/

I tried the Black Diamond last year and liked it a lot. However, My favorite is the Echo Crossfire which I use all the time. It seems to last longer than the Black Diamond and it cuts great!! I just recently bought a fresh 5lb spool!

I have also tried a great many trimmer lines. For me the most important criteria for doing residential lawn maintenance is how much the line resists twisting, and its ability to lay flat while spinning. I'm sure you've noticed when line becomes "extra grabby" which leads to catching up in the grass, burnouts, and throwing rocks. I found that this tends to happen when the line goes on the spool twisted. Normally when at rest the line makes a nice flat S shape when emerging from the spool. Sometimes one side will arc in the wrong direction, or toward the ground. I find this is when all the trouble starts. The Echo "Max Twist" 0.95 was the best line I've ever used for smoothness and resistance to this effect, but it seems they've discontinued it. I can only hope the Black Diamond is at least as good in this respect. Anyone know of any secret warehouses still full of Max Twist 0.95?

I really like maruyama. 105 square seems to hold up good against tombstones. Not a fan of any twisted line just not use to it usually will use some at the house and it's growing on me.

I run the husqavarna titanium .095 or .105
I buy it from Lowe's because and can get it cheaper than from a dealer and they often run sales like today I bought 5 spools for $17 each. Regularly $35.
I did use stihl round solid green line alot this year and it held up great as well very comparable to the husqy but it ran me around $30 a spool.

I'd like to get some echo line and rig up three weed eaters with a spool and see how far I could string edge. (I have over a mile of edging to do next week that may make for a good video)
