Replacing 5/16 genoa sheets

I think I've settled on Samson Trophy Braid 3/8 for a genoa sheet replacement on our Precision 23. So many choices, so little time. I've spend a whole day studying specs and qualities of ropes, and am about to pull the trigger. My trimmer complains about the strength needed to haul and hold the old ones, and I hope to make him happy with this. Also, It comes in a color that I'm looking for.

All of this to ask if there's any reason I should avoid Trophy Braid for this applicaion, or if there's something significantly better.

Is weight a significant factor on a 20 foot (including tailings) sheet line?

Thanks,
