I can recommend a Dacron/Polyesther rope for antenna support work. The
Black Dacron covering provides UV and abrasion protection and the Polyesther
is virtually stretch proof (unlike nylon) and very strong. Various sizes
are available from Cubex Antenna company, 3/16",1/8" , 3/16" are suitable for
most wire antennas. My choice is the 1/8" .

One such rope is 3/16 braided nylon(?) in a black
My use is for longwire installation from the outside
of the insulators to the supports--trees in my case.
