The negative qualities of three-strand make it a non-starter if you can afford megaplait or one of the double-braids. The double braids and megaplait also have very good stretch characteristics.
One good thing about the 3 strand is that you get more stretch out of it. Also I think it's more chafe resistance although those two properties seem to be at odds.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
