Small diameter spring wire from the K&S rack at your hobby store. If you need to you can solder the end. I use 600 grit paper, then solder it. I also put a short piece of yellow heat shrink tubing on the top end so I can see it. Pick a diameter that springs back the way you like. The thicker the wire the faster it will snap back to straight.

Thanks I am going to hit the LHS up when it cools down here. It is hotter the goats but sitting in a pepper patch. Thanks
