Best ice fishing line (for traps)?

Hello fellow anglers,

I have been fishing for over 30 years now and have yet to come across ice fishing line like I remember from the 80's. I liked I because it was slick and had a larger diameter. This new stuff is so thin that if you don't follow proper line management after a fish goes on a significant run, the line starts knotting around the button marker and turns into a mess. Last time out using suffix ice, of the 4 traps I caught fish on, 3 of them I became so badly tangled I ended up cutting line and starting over. I just don't see the advantage of using a thread-like line when ice fishing...thoughts???
