I think where a lot of people run into the sagging problem is that they put their posts too far apart. On the pen where I've got the wide tape (2 inches), my posts are only about 15 feet apart (I just used the posts from a previous fence) and I've never had one single problem with sagging except when the horses tried to run through it and stretched it out a little.
Even with fairly common 40 mph winds and not uncommon 80+ straightline winds, it's never sagged.
With something that doesn't catch wind like wire or rope, you can get by with the posts being farther apart, but with tape, they need to be closer.
