what is the strongest string in the world

I need something that is really strong but not as thin as sewing thread. And I can't use wire. Any ideas?

It's usually helpful to know what the item is going to be is used for.

Nylon, kevlar or silk would be some of the strongest available.
Silk when spun is almost unbreakable.

Dental Floss is said to be the strongest of all.

Floss is another good choice. Early floss was made from silk but now it's nylon threads.

Ahh, yes. I have cut my hand on Spiderwire trying to retrieve a lure. Don't wrap it around your hand
