I use 1/4 inch dacron rope attached to bungee cords, with a "safety" 
rope around the bungee cord to make it fail-safe.  Works fine here in 
the Colorado Rockies at 7500 feet, with TONS of sunshine and UV year 
round.  I replace them about every two years.  I use both the heavy 
rubber bungees and the cotton covered ones.
