for the ST1501-S trimmer, are there alternate heads that work better than the one it came with?

I'm tired of stopping so frequently to unjam the twisted .095 string so that it will advance when I bump the head.  Is there a better, faster-loading head that fits that unit or can I not change the head to something different?  If there are other heads that fit, what are the model numbers?   TIA

No, Dave, there are no alternative trimmer heads. You just need to figure out why your line is getting twisted.

I've been using the 15-inch trimmer for more than three years and have never had that problem. You might want to try a different brand of string.

ah.  thx Ken.  Since I posted, I loaded up some different .095 string that I had in stock--it is smooth.  I'll see how that goes.
