I saw this thread:


Not sure if I should have just posted there or started fresh but ....

I saw a TV ad for a "Pivot Head" that was pretty good. The string goes on like a U around a mini pivot point. Its suppose to be better at not breaking on obstacles. At Lowes they have a head called "The Ugly Head". It appears similar.

I have a Bump Feed head that is original and its ok but going along my field fence I break a lot of string. I use "simulated twisted line" that feels flexible and seems fairly tough.

Any feed back on "The Ugly Head".

I am cutting Fescue, briars, various "weeds" and some honey suckle etc. some fairly heavy stuff but not too hard of stalks that require a blade and I need to go by the field fence and can't with a blade.
