Re-Stringing a Trampoline

Looks like its time to re tie the tramp on my L380. PO used parachute cord and it has lasted 2 years before it has chafed through at either the tramp grommets or the boat edge. What have others used that may last longer than 2 years? I was thinking of going to some of the high tech lines (spectra and the like) but was wondering if it would be worth the extra cost.

spectra is the way to go in my opinion.

good examples of lacing patterns here:
multihullnets, attach, lacing
