here in nz it depends on what you require there are many options some of the most expensive are Spectra braid and Vectran braid these have no stretch and a very small cord will be rated somewhere near a ton breaking strain
however uv stabilised polyester offers a very cheap long lasting (usually white with a blue fleck in it). Donaghys use to make rope here but now seem to be in Aus
any yacht chandellry will have a good range. Cookes wire services also carry some ropes
