isn't 7/64 amsteel from redden marine cheaper?
Yes (and from AHE too).

I also prefer to support Marlow because I like what they're doing, and to not support Samson because I don't like their sleazy marketing and insubstantial "technical information".
Regarding price:performance for hammock applications, Amsteel-Blue appears to be the best.
Update on Dynamic line 2.0mm:
The b/s is 900kg lab tested by the factory, I spoke to them today.
Its sk75 which has been pre-stretched. It started out at about 3mm. It exhibits almost no creep.
Splicing it loses about 10%.
As it turns out, this has been around a while, and is about to be updated, which, according to the factory will offer higher b/s in this diameter.

I still don't understand why it's so heavy (even heavier than 3 mm).
