    if its dynaglide you speak of... it should be no more difficult than amsteel 7/64. taper tail, and pull through - as shown in the pics a few posts up. i've never had an issue...so long as my fid wire is thin enough- (a coat hanger will not due)

    Double check to make sure it is hollow core braided line or you can't splice it.

    If it is hollow core braided line, try massaging the cord (wadding it up) to loosen the strands. Then your guitar string should slide thru with no problem.

    I use Dyneema for all sorts, ridge line, guy lines etc, but it's not hollow core so can't be spliced, they may do a hollow version but I'm unsure. if you want to splice amsteel is the way forward.

    I have a roll of Zing It that I've spliced for many things (tarp ridge, guy lines, soft biners, etc.), without any issues at all.

    I use the very thin (30 gauge silver) florist wire for my fid / puller. Even the regular 24 gauge green stuff is too thick. Tapering the ends makes it easier as well. Above all, exercise patience and practice. You'll do fine.

    I'm not high maintenance! I'm simply low tolerance.
