Can of worms here. If it's only 12 feet you have a smallish boat so weight may or may not be a big consideration. I've had great luck with Samson LS or XLS. They are standard polyester lines that don't get racers too excited but are cheap and very dependable/easy to work with. Can be used for all running rigging on a cruising boat. Your bifurcation would seem to be whether weight and stretch are your biggest concerns, or whether 90% the performance and 30% the price is good enough.
Endless online opinions and resources on this. Working with lines is one of my favorite things about being a sailor. I look for any opportunity to splice and rig new lines!
