Default Buoy String

Any advice on replacing my string. I've googled my fingers off and can't find a replacement option for this marker. Any suggestions besides " become a better boat handler and ditch the buoy." The SureMarker buoy uses 100# line and I've also seen 200# braid suggested. Thanks for any input.

I wouldn't use 200 pound braid. What happens when it gets stuck or worse, wrapped around your hand and gets in the prop.

Very good points to consider. I don't tie straight to my weight, I use smaller mono and have broke off many weights... The prop is always a concern with braid. I've swam more than once to clear the prop.

It's probably about 180'. Only one way to find out the exact length. Want it?
Don't need it for tripwire.....
