New mainsheet - recommendations

Time to replace the 3/8" mainsheet on my Catalian 25. Natually I will be using a dacron double braid, UV resistant. I have a couple-three questions:

(1) Any brand that is heads and shoulders above the rest?

(2) I am changing from a 3:1 to a 4:1 system. The length I need to add would be the distance between both blocks when I am on a run?

(3) Are dark colored lines more susceptable to UV damage than light colored lines?
