Ha... love it.... want it... NEED IT!
I think the “store the string in water” idea is just to keep it away from air.
I believe that ozone and other airborne elements or molecules gradually decompose the plastic or cause it to age and lose flexibility.

Meanwhile, I am so well known for talking to myself, that for Christmas I received a sweatshirt like this one. View attachment 23871

I'll repeat: I think that 0.080" string is for grass only. When I run my Stihl FS90 at full RPM a freshly wound spool will last only a couple of weeks (using it to trim around 500 feet twice a month). When I run the trimmer just fast enough to clip the grass and weeds, I can easily triple that. Problem is, keeping the speed constant.
