    Yes (and from AHE too).

    Assuming the next question, I prefer Marlow's product because it's lighter and better made (and the strength:weight is about 10% higher).

    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.

    Thanks.

    They're not the only ones to pre-stretch line but I've never seen similar specs.

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