Depends on what you are going to use them for. I agree that the genoas especially are among the best, if not the best racing sails around--lighter and stronger and better shaped. However, like all the high-tech sails, they have limited sun resistance, break down quickly when flogged, and North didn't like to put reef points in the mains. Most people store the headsails in sausage bags and roll the mains, because sharp folds tend to break them down.
