I really don't use that type of string.
But a thought, have you ever squeezed it flat and then cut to a sharp point, then use a little super glue, and just a little, then spray it with with the super glue accelerator. The accelerator will set it up immediately,and would then be stiffer on the end to push through. One time I had to resort to that tip, and it did work, but then again it was with nat. gut and not kevlar, so I know 1st hand this does work with nat. gut on a blocked hole that had 2 strings blocking the grommet hole. May be worth a try with kevlar.
