That's the stuff I've been eyeballing for my next stern line but the stuff posted by JohnEisberg looks promising. Hey John, does that stuff accept knots or is it self untying like polypro?

Does either line stand up to UV?

The webbing setups on spools look nice as a different option but are PRICEY and webbing won't stand up to any chafe at all.
