    the auto feed feeds line when you DONT WANT it, and doesnt feedf when you DO want it, leading to breaking the line.

    i was so happy once i swapped to shindy type heads.

    they work EVERY time, and as long as you dont take the line cutter off the snipper, so you dont get too much line out, they work brilliant.

    have probably worn through 10 heads for the t230, and 3 for the fs130.

    Yes, you are absolutely right. In my opinion if you aren't using a speed feed you are wasting your time and money. I drill the spool hole out so I can put 2.7 to 3mm line in. I won't use anything else any more.
    Everybody is entitled to MY opinion

    Yeah I think indy have both genuine tanaka ones and bynorm ones? (mine came from local store) You have to manually feed them which can be a pita if you're cleaning up a rock wall and destroying the line quickly but you don't really think about it once you get into the habit of it. And I worked out the trick so you the chord never welds together, each time you unwind the chord a slot unwind it around 180 so it's loose ready for next unwind.
