Re: Replacing 5/16 genoa sheets

So many ideas, all appreciated. Concerning budget, I'll spend more money if I'm confident that I'll be able to see a noticeable difference in the hand comfort, and in the weight of sheets in extremely light air, which we get around here in the summer. Of course I don't want to throw money away where I can't tell a difference on a 23 with 150 genoa.
I see differening opinions on what feels good in the hand.

Is polyester on polyester truly the best feeling and running line for hand held use? If I could get half the weight with equal hand that's the way I'll go. Color is a factor too, and I've been looking for red. Some don't come in red. Maybe I'm just slow, but this shouldn't be so hard.

Thank you for all the input.
