Recoil Starter Rope Options

New sailer here so forgive my ignorance...

The recoil starter rope broke when I attempted to start my Johnson outboard yesterday. There was just enough left where I could start the engine and get out of the marina to sail so the day wasn't a bust. Regardless, I want to fix it.

I've looked online and it definitely seems fairly easy to replace but was wondering is there any difference in the ones sold at a hardware store for a lawnmower v. one at a marine store? Thanks!
