Weed eater line varies so much its almost impossible to know if you got good leader material or not. Some of it will stretch so much, that its like using a bungee cord, other batches of it have very little stretch. I have had some that, while huge in diameter, was very low in strength. The only dependable quality I've found about trimmer line is its abrasion resistance. If you get lucky, it may make some great leaders. If you get unlucky, it might loose you a good fish.
I've used trimmer line in the past trying to save a buck, I don't anymore because of bad experiences and lost fish while using it.
