Any dyneema line that is the same or thicker will do. Best to replace the same line on both sides so any difference in length from shrinkage or elasticity compared to the rest of the bridle won't make the kite pull to one side.

I have used 16 strand hollow braided dyneema fishing line of similar gauge to splice a repair on Bullets. Works fine, but is not as stiff as top quality bridle line. Not a problem with a single element but if you built a whole bridle with it the bridle would be floppy and prone to tangling during ground handling. Also, I am not too serious about my fixed bridle kites. I would be interested to know if you get any info from Flexi!
