I love octoplait, which is lovely in your hands, doesn't twist, coils nicely, etc. I use it for all my docklines, snubbers, and many other things, in both nylon and polyester.
But it is a stretchier construction than either three stand or multistrand braid (one reason why it's so good for docklines and snubbers). This particular rope in 16mm has only 4 tons breaking strength. Would be great in many applications, but doesn't look like a good choice for sheets
