Right now I'm working with the Uschi line ("fine" for 1/48) ...it looks round, but since it's very thin...not 100% sure.
It doesn't look flat like EZline for sure.

Bob , Robin is right . It is round . I pick up a spool of the 32 scale and 48 scale rigging line , but haven't tried it . I used ez-line on my last 32 Fokker E.1 and didn't like it at all .

Robin , how do like it so far and is it easy threading it brass tubing ?

Terri,

I'm not an experienced rigger and it certainly isn't the part of a build I like most...understatement. ::)

This said....it's okey stuff to work with.
It goes well through the tubing, responds well to CA glue, it stretches nicely and it looks good (dark grey).

Minor downside...it's very soft and flexible, this makes threading a bit of a challenge, but when I can do it...you can for sure.  :)
