Answer: 
That depends on the application a straight shaft is better for larger open areas, edging and commercial use because of the various attachments. A curved shaft is better for light duty yard work and is lighter in weight.

Answer: 
Yes this shaft should fit most any ryobi trimmer and as for the head, not to be insulting or funny but If you aren't using the stock head check out how you installed it, I've seen way to many guys put a different head on the shaft on upside down so they can get a better and closer trim. the head wears out to quick

Rated 3.2 out of 5 by 87 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by powerful and efficient easy attaching and turning for edging. string is difficult to resupply. August 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Trimmer attachment I have a handyman who works for me, as I cannot easily handle yard work anymore. This will make it easier for him. August 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent attachment I am going on my third season of with this trimming attachment. I purchased my curved attachment at the same time I purchased the Ryobi power-head, as the combo with the curved shaft was out of stock at the time. Nevertheless, this attachment has performed flawlessly throughout the rigors of my woods and yard. The reel design can sometimes make it difficult to thread new line into the spool, so I generally take the extra step and disassemble the reel to thread the line, then winding line into the spool is a cinch. I am very happy with my attachment [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] April 30, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by I was expecting something much easier to handle and less hassle I was expecting something much easy to handle , to wind up the string is kind hard and once you get it to run is kind of frustrating to make the string to work like it should , you stop and pull the string everytime you need more string . July 21, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I absolutely love this product I love this unit especially since it is one of many attachments I can use with the engine. I can swap out this attachment quick and easily to the pole saw or edger. The only flaw I have with it is that I am an absolute idiot when it comes to re-string trimmer heads, not just this one but every single trimmer head I have ever attempted so not necessarily a flaw of this machine. So I had choices which I loved. I could either figure out the whole re-stringing thing, buy a replacement spool (pre strung) or use one of the replacement blades that made the whole string thing not an issue. I chose the latter and bought an aftermarket permanent replacement head so I don't have to restring ever again. June 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works Great! I highly recommend this attachment. The line feeder in the trimmer makes it easy to add line when you run out. All you do is line up the arrows on the head and then you feed the line through the two holes. After that, you just twist the knob and wind the line into the spool. July 5, 2016
