    I have located corner rods and want to put 2-3 points on line. Will use 1/2 in iron rods also.
    Problem is that the property line is 800 ft long. I tried to string a line between posts but it dropped so much it was useless. When I tried to tighten it, it would break. I know I could get heavier cord but is there an easier way?

    Rent a "dumpy level", sight from point to point and use a plum-bob, or a triangular story pole, or stripping spray paint.

    I would use a stationary green laser at night. over distance the line gets fat. Just use the center of the line

    You can use green laser during the day also.
