    After all the endorsements for Glowire, with which I thoroughly concur, I would also note that if you want something non-reflective you can use Guywire, and if you want something a bit stronger there is Ironwire. They also handle very well, hold all knots superbly and resist tangling.

    I've been using 1.75 Lash it for a few years and it's held up super well. Prusiks don't always hold super well, but I used tensioner hardware anyway.

    I recently picked up some 1.3mm dyneema, we'll see how that works.
