    Home Depot, where Jaxhiker said he got his line, is a chain that sells hardware and things for home improvement. Almost surely the line he
    has is "mason line" (braided, not twisted, if he's smart), which comes in bright lime green, shocking pink, and white. Strong stuff and inexpensive.
    Prone though to tangling. Your stuff--dyneema--is very strong, and considerably more expensive. I've got some of both, although shocking pink has never been my color of choice

    I think the eBay stuff is going to be better. My stuff is a little different. First off it seems much thicker and it's only 5/32" (3.97mm compared to 1.5). It's not mason line, though. That's more like a poly twine that's shiny and imho doesn't serve much useful purpose outside of its intended use. It unravels way too easily. This is diamond-braid poly. I'll try to take a close-up later but my P&S camera sucks.

    agree twisted mason line is without benefit for us. Braided mason line is a different story though. Just look at the labels carefully. Doesn't unravel.
