In your comparison Scott Sails is significantly cheaper (8oz instead of 8.3oz though)

I just got a good quote from them and am thinking of doing them instead of FX. Anyone ever order from scott sails?

I am in the process of getting a bunch of quotes. I've gotten about 6 so far and was kinda surprised that they were all pretty much in the ballpark given the difference in materials, etc. I think places like fxsails, scott sails, and sailquoaes.com along with some automation/tooling advances have started to make generic sails more of a commodity thing, which is good for us sailors. 'Real' lofts will always be there for racers and people like Jeff.

I'm also happy I decided on getting a smaller boat, a main for my R24 is 550-850 depending on options.
