is it better to use fishingline for bags and masks instead of stretchy string? is it overall cheaper?

I'm currently using stretchy string (which I buy in HUGE spools online because its cheaper) and I was wondering if fishing line would work any better. If so, could I get some brands/prices/places to buy? Thanks :)

Use fishing line for bags because it will be less likely to break and also if you use fishing line for masks it will make it form a lot better, make sure if you are going to make a bag though to restring it a lot, probably 3 times just to make sure it won't be able to break and if you are going to have straps restring it 5 times :]

fishing line is best. buy the 15 or 30lbs line though. it'll be less likely to bust when you're making knots. the cheap thinner stuff tends to bust if you pull too tight. a spool with like 300yds can cost 2-3$.

It's wayyy better to use fishing line for bags and masks because they don't get all weird and misshapen and floppy, they stay in perfect shape. Fishing line is also super cheap, i just buy it in like the outdoor sections of stores and it usually comes with A LOT of line so it lasts forvvver so yeah i'd recommend it. I don't really think that brand matters too much because i just buy the really cheap kind and it works fine :3
