The B or G string from an electric guitar should do you just fine for thin line.

Thanks for your sharing.

Today i tried with my "old tool " , i.e. one of the two thinner guitar chord (i can't remember, B or G as you said maybe, i am a drummer ... ) rolled on a champagne plug as a handle . It worked far better than what i remember from my last experience :

Certainly thanks to its coating that gives some rigidity (my previous 0.8mm dyneema was from land power kites since not existing for kitesurf at that moment, pure white without any coating).

I was easily able to splice it on 10cm , so it is not a challenge nowadays.
