A thin messenger line will suffice...but thin line can jump the sheave and wedge next to it, jamming. Either make darn sure you keep it tight or use a thicker messenger.
Its a good idea to stitch lines together with some whipping when pulling one line thru with another. Tape-only works until it doesn't!
