You do mean the genoa halyard? 3mm, 7×19 S/S. Hard eye for genoa end and soft eye for tension end.
I like to have a shortened, shroud chain plate plastic cover on the halyard at the genoa end put on the wire before the hard eye is done.
I use this to cover the wire to genoa shackle so it does not rip the sails up aloft.
