Default Pull-Pull is OK

I've used it for many years....rudders and elevators on airplanes up to 25%'ers, although my current planes were built stock per manf, so they have pushrods.

I've found the best value on stuff to be 45lb or greater stranded stainless steel, nylon coated fishing leader line with crimps. Any good fishing supply house will have this stuff...it's cheap...

Although not "trick" enough for most folks, I use Sullivan 4-40 eye bolts, lock nuts, threaded into the Nelson (old Rocket City) fittings that I get from John at Aeroprotect RC.

Using the eyebolts means you can replace cables if they wear, without messing with the control arm/clevis...SUPER easy to set up.
