Monofilament line is SLIPPERY.What makes for a superb material on a reel is a detriment as a snare. The loop can often open back up. Brass, Stainless Steel and even braided line will drag against itself.<br><br>

Monofilament will work as a last result, although the 200 lb. line will probably hold a loop better. Mono. line will cut itself very fast if not tied properly, but on the other hand will cut the snared subject just as quick. Pre-made snares are too reasonable in cost to pass up. In an emergency situation I would rather have a proven design than my own homemade unit unless well tested beforehand. But in an emergency situation even vines could be used. (I guess the subject could chew through if fast enough.)<br><br>Regards<br>Hunter<br><br>
