You can use a variety of lines for reserve closing loops. The old standard is nylon Type IIIA, aka. gutted 550 cord. 500 or 800 pound Spectra suspension line also works well. Lately, I have been using Cypres cord in most rigs. It is mandatory when installing a loop-cutter AAD. Cypres cord is a good idea even without an AAD because it reduces pull forces by 5 pounds!
