Just bought a 5/8" swedged cable 75' long for $200 bucks.
100' cable was going to be $335 with shipping.

Get the biggest cable you will be comfortable lugging around all day.
100' of cable is going to get heavy fast.  :D

I'm using 1/2" because it was free, but it does just fine for me, i'd rather break that than pretty well anything else, but i'm just playing around.
