What kin of string do you recommend for stiff cuffs?

I like to use 1.5 mm glittery bead n stretch but it runs put quickly. So what kind of string do you recommend for stiff cuff cuz I don't like flappy loose ones that you get with elastic no matter how hard you stretch it. I'm thinking about using fishing line so my cuffs come out stiff. So any good string for stiff cuffs?

I use the elastic. The first cuffs I made were really tight. I basically have to roll them on my wrists. I just pulled the elastic really tightly. So I wasn't using as much.

Try fishing line! It doesn't have to be very thick either, the thinner the better because it ties easier but it will be very stiff! And it's very cheap!

1.5?!?!? holy crap thats thick. I was going to suggest 1mm stretch magic since you can get it in the 25 meter packs. (but "it runs out too quickly" is not a valid concern, its on you to figure out how many meters you are getting when you purchase string)
