The stock Ego 0.095 spiral line is just too brittle and looking for something more durable.

So, you have had good luck with the Husqvarna Titanium Force?  That Ego line breaks had the slightest provocation and it often breaks internally, so I have to pull off the head each time to feed it out.

Champion,  Will the Husky Titanium tear up wood borders or is pretty gentle on wood, but tough on vegetation?

I've used the Husky Titanium 0.095 for over a year.  It has held up well--better than the EGO line that came with the trimmer...I think.  I've not had any internal breaks.  I use the trimmer on St. Augustine grass along a cedar fence, concrete slab, and to edge and sweep the trenches around several flower beds.  It does leave marks on the cedar fence, but of course they're close to the ground and therefore mostly not visible from the street.

.095 vortex is very good line....and pretty quite. In .095 it is my go to line.....gone through unknown feet of this line. Recently found a .080 that works well also.

I used the Husky Titanium 0.095 line and it works well.  Not as brittle as stock Ego string, easy to feed thru head and unit does not bog down with it
