I'm using VPC for jib sheets on my 25' racer, been very happy with their performance.
I've used Samson XLS before and it works well, but wouldn't recommend it for halyards or guys. I'm assuming the Cajun brand would work fine. Pretty stretchy though.

Might want to look into a single braid for the main sheet. Salsa, Apex, Bzzz line, are all good choices. Run easily, and very easy on the hands.

And it seems you mention VPC, SALSA, APEX, BZZZ all of which are NE products with no mention of affiliation. Maybe you didn't work for them then or maybe the SN rules didn't require disclosure yet in either case you said 'Cajun would work fine' and now you say 'inferior product.' Did you have an experience that would change your mind?

Maybe you didn't have an affiliation with NE at the time but I must say it seems odd that you would recommend at least 4 NE products and now are a sales guy.

Just trying to understand your change of heart on the matter.
