Is my jib/genoa toast?

I have a 135 jib/genny on my P10M. No matter what I do, I can't seem to stop sail leech from luffing. I have cranked down on the leech line, moved the cars, adjusted the jib main; nothing seems to work. It luffs on all points of sail, close hauled, reach run, etc. I can get the three tell-tales all to fly straight back with proper sail trim, but the leech is still luffing.

Ideas?

Thanks in advance.

Bill
