new fence gate

what is the best hardware to use on a 4 foot wide by 6 ft tall fence gate. i want something that will NOT SAG. should i expect to put steel in the gate to strengthen it?

A well made gate should not sag for a while, even with constant use. For sags a tie rod is usually connected from the top hinge side to the bottom swing side and tightened until the sag is pulled up.
