Almost all mono lines are about the same diameter for the same strength, since their polymer formulas are almost identical (i.e. almost all nylon). Stren Magnathin is about as good as you can do, like Z said.
Your next step up is braid. And it really is a step up. You could load your spool with 14 lb. fireline crystal which is the same diameter as 6 lb. mono. The braid is that much stronger for its size. The next time you catch your lure on a log, you can just reel in the log! Ha! (I probably wouldn't go up to 14, but you could.)
"Crystal" in this case doesn't really mean "clear". For invisibility in the water, add a 3 ft. or so leader of clear fluorocarbon, it has the same refractive index as water and disappears under water.
