Have a few of those myself - like using them with my tarps (connected to a loop of shockcord). Have fun with those (though not sure how well braided mason's line will work for you). I have used dacron kite-flying cord (nice and cheap) and its worked out great! No-tangle line (the orange glo) works great as well but neither are spliceable.
