    have any of you tried high strength fishing line instead of floss?

    One of my training partners swears by fishing line.

    Does not stand up to repeated washing when using bleach in my experience. I use a modest amount of bleach about every third time I wash one of my gi, and the fishing line broke down in two months doing this.

    I noticed the line was yellowed when I examined it after it ripped. Rather unscientifically, I decided that was most likely due to the bleach since my gi spend virtually no time being exposed to sunlight.
    Shut the hell up and train.

    Based on the years old fishing line i find at the beach i'd say you are correct.

    Also, floss is cheap and widely available.

    Sounds like monofilament. You could try one of the superbraids, which are more or less Kevlar, definitely impervious to sun, one of the main reasons I use it extensively. It's expensive for fishing line, but at, say, $15/150 yards, it's probably cheaper than floss in the long run. Of course, you wouldn't use 150 yards in ten lifetimes, and most of us have floss laying about anyway.

    Floss is like $1-2 for over 50 yds.
    Kevlar is yellow.

    Fair enough. You can get superbraid in white, but I doubt there's be any advantage any way, unless you really need 300# breaking strength on your crotch repair.
