As mentioned by Jeff, I would go with Pro-Tech for braided lines and fittings. Some of his other products are great to as I have used some on some of my builds.

Pro Tech is the best braided line in the business hands down. Plus Charlie is a great guy to do business with. You can't go wrong.

I've seen the Pro Tech line and it is hands down the most accurate for the scale , but if 100% accuracy is not required, look in the beading isle at Micheals . they have a couple different sizes that fit the bill for me

 

Everything show here came from that isle, the beads themselfe I am not 100% happy with the sizes and may change them, or may not

Also check out braided elastic cord, in various sizes at your local craft or sewing supply stores, color it with a silver sharpie....or, look at your (and be - uh, DISCREET here)venetian blinds - they have a cord you use to adjust the angle of the blind, and usually have 2 or 3 feet you can trim and use for braided line....Having said that,Pro Tech is the most realistic and easiest to use of the aftermarket stuff I have seen....'Z'
