I would avoid the standard polyester double braid and go with a low stretch line. Something with a poly-dyneema blend core and a poly cover will give you good performance and still be reasonable in cost. I have used the rigging service at Defender many times. Good price on the line and quick turnaround on the splices. Remember if you get a parallel core line, you need to do a core-to-core splice which is not for beginners.
