Fender line size?

I was watching some fender tie videos, that all seem to use larger lines, maybe 1/2".
I have had a very large fender tied on using 1/4 " nylon double braid for years. that rope has survived me forgetting to pull in the fender while getting stretched and squeezed between boat and wood pilings.
I have some short pieces of 9/16 nylon 3 strand I am thinking of setting aside for this task.

I see lots of videos on tying to the rail, but none on tieing line to fender, What knot do you use? I have five 10"? diameter fenders with end tie places, and one with a central hole.
And I have a very large red round ball type fender. It floated by the boat one day.
