Hi Rachel,
I carry a very lightweight only 2 ozs for 50 feet of 1000 lb test line.  It
was purchased at a local camping store and it works great for me.  I've seen
similiar type lightweight line at Campmor.  I don't exactly remember what it
cost but it wasn't expensive.  The light weight was the determining  factor
and 1000 lb test line is enought to hang any food bag.  

Take care,
