Are ukulele strings close or the same as FC fishing line?

Just different pound test for the different strings?

Just wondering out loud here.

Yes; it's not crazy and fairly well known. Different pound/tension for different strings, and in our case, we figured that out by feel and playing over just grabbing a micrometer and consulting a calculator.

Use the search function or this:


You'll find pots of info on using fluorocarbon fishing line. Some seem to like the quest for good, homebrew string sets and others, like me, think that time and money is better spent and that vendors like Southcoast strings and others have already done excellent work for us.
