I think the fishing line is stronger.
Also be very careful with a heat gun. You can do serious damage to your paint. Heat guns get extremely hot and can cause your paint to "bubble" very rapidly.

I waited for a nice, hot summer day to do mine. I parked the car in the sun (so the sun was shining directly on the rear of the car), and I waited about 1 hour. The paint was warm enough that the emblems came off fairly easily with some dental floss.
