    Hey there! This one was a lot of fun to make! Ever since the lawn mower video I've been wanting to do this, and I've been working on it all week. Thank you for those of you who support us on Patreon! You bring stability to my family's life. My goal is to be a light during this time. I know the world is a bit crazy at the moment. I wish you and your family peace and love. Spread the love and help others where you can. Look for the positive stories of people coming together in unity and try to amplify them. There's a lot of disinformation at the moment so if you recall what we learned together in the social media disinformation series, think twice before you share something! Warm Regards, Destin

    the fence scenes: couldn't it be a melting of the plastic due to friction? instead of a tension cut? a 3d printer talking.... it just looks like melting... if it's even a melting plastic

    Hey, thanks for the great episode, can you add other kinds like twisted or saw shaped lines to the next test please. I somehow believe that they have very little or no positive effect.

    FYI. On your recommendation I order the Raycon ear buds. Long Story short, over a month later no ear buds but lots of excuses. Maybe not use them as a sponsor.

    Shame about all the microplastics that get sprayed in to the environment whenever you cut that weed eater line.

    Hope you get this I work for Lowe's and have found that if you soak the trimmer line in a bucket of water for 24 to 48 hours the line gets much more durable. Hope it helps you

    Seeing the amount of elastic deformation and abrasion the line has to sustain, I can't help but wonder what the temperature is like at the end of the line. Do they do slow-mo thermal cameras?

    Wow, weed eaters actually put off plastic litter, even if small that is going into the soil/water below. Makes sense but it's actually quite a bit. May not be a huge deal,, just means companies hopefully are making their weed eater lines out of eco-friendly products vs just plastic.
