Type of wood for patio cover?

What type of wood should I be using for replacing these 1 1/2" X 1 1/2" slats that run across?
Douglas fir seems really heavy. Should I be using pine, cedar or redwood instead?

Cedar and Redwood are naturally more rot resistant, the pine will absolutely have to be primed and painted to survive!
