The problem that you may run into however is that the sheaves (wheels) at the top of your mast are most likely designed for cable. If you just just run stay-set through them the new line will very likely be damaged in a very short period of time maybe even days.
You should make sure your sheaves match what is running through them.

Apparently some folks have done the switch without modifying the sheaves and done fine.

What would you use on a larger boat for the topping lift?
I'm not sure what the underlying question is. Any decent line should be OK since a topping lift is only in play when the sail is down.

It is more of a convenience line than a necessary line.
