It is all fishing line. Florocarbon line was developed for the commerical fishing industry, then recreational fisherman found out about its benifits, then fretted stringed instrument builders. Nylon and monofilment are thicker and stretch more than florocarbon so it was a natural evolution.
Well ... much to my dismay ... I sent my Mainland in for a refund. Once I actually got to play it for awhile I found the set up to be lacking and the intonation to be off by quite a bit.
