Floatline on a break-away set up

This may be a dumb question, but I have been accused of that before anyway. Here goes:

If I am going to create a break-away set-up, do I need a "floatline" (the line inside a plastic tube)?

Why can't I just rig the breakaway clip from the spear line to a nylon paracord type line and connect that to the float? Is there some magic I am missing. "Floatlines" are pricey. Paracord/nylong floating line is cheap at Home Depot.

I ask because after some sharky encounters the idea came up to rig shafts on breakaways and let the person manning the boat just putter around and pull up the floats that are moving (being connected to a fish) and we continue hunting with the other guns we brought down with us.
You can't stop stupid; you have to work really hard just to contain it.
