Standing rigging- Doing it myself

I had a quote done and and after the ungodly price was given I decided to go it myself. Afterall I have worked up there befor and can get the non crimped/rolled attachments, turnbuckles and cable.

Any suggestions on which brands to use there is the sta-loc, Norseman and Hayn from what defenders catalog shows. And I am considering going up a size as suggested by a retired rigger that lives on my dock, any thoughts on that?

The boat is an Irwin 32.5 center cockpit sloop. It currently has 1/4'' forward, uppers, and backstay. And 3/16'' forward and aft lowers.
