My favorite material to use is gray nylon macrame yarn, although the material I show in the pic is very acceptable. I have a supply I found in a thrift store, but I'm sure you could find some in any craft store.
I was going to ask if you had problems with your tippet wrapping around those posts during casts. Your saying too light and it can cause problems?
