current westmarine priceing for amsteel is- .23$ for 7/64ths. and .38$ for 1/8th. not double, but a price difference bigger that an additional 1/64th of matl. would warrent .i doubt if you'd get and reply from the manufatures directly. they are in the biz of supplying rope to the marine sector which is a huge market! hammock hangers??... whatz that??!!.... the breaking strength is listed on west marine site...i doubt if westmarine made up these numbers, mostly becaues the exposure to liability is just too much , even for a retailer of their size......i might add that in most cases of rope failure it's either a case of the buyer expecting too much of the selected rope or the simple bad pracitices of not inspecting the rope for "the signs of wear". face it, we all are offenders of the last
