What line for cascading vang?

I'm going to install the cascading vang described elsewhere on the forum. What size and type of line do you use with this setup?

I used 1/4", but it seems like thinner low-stretch line would work just as well.

There is a good picture on one of the Scot sites. I forgot which but maybe someone could help or do a search.
I used 1/8" amsteel or equivalent for the cascade and 1/4" for the handling part. Works really smooth.

I used 3/16 amsteel for the cascade (a bit easier to splice in the larger diameter) and 5/16 Marstran (same as my mainsheet)for the handling part. The 5/16 is used because it is easier to handle than the thinner stuff.
