Polyester all the way.

Nylon stretches when wet and sun fades.
Polypro gets hard and frays with sun exposure.

Polyester starts strongest and stays strongest.

NRS does have two springs in their cams. I believe Salamander does as well.
Strapworks and most other strap makers only use a single spring.
Two springs do bite better with more camming force.

I run Strapworks polyester for my cat frame to D ring connections. However, polyester doesn't float so i use a high visibility polypro for taglines and fliplines. You can get the personalized polyester in a rafter package it's just more money than the polypro. Still a smokin' good deal through Strapworks.
