Best material for shroud lines

Post by astronomybuff » February 25th, 2020, 2:51 pm

Hey, I was wondering what would be the best thing to use for the shroud lines for the parachute. I've heard thin yarn is OK, but what do you guys recommend?

I've seen lots of success with both sewing thread and fishing line.

For me, the braided fishing line works the best.
