    I don't fell like replying but ...

    I use and have used for many many years the same roll of nylon fishing line
    When tied off
    1) burn ends with heat source
    2) coat threads with nail polish
    3) Last 30 years I have been using heat activated blue shrink wrap to create a cosmetic appearance

    No self respecting California fish would want to be speared by sear gun that had ugly slings
    Not so certain about the southern fish

    Maybe Dano @mako Spear guns will have a supply of line for you ??
