They make good sails, IIRC they have won the TP52 med cup the last few years. Not sure how their sails have been doing on the V70 around the world race, I think norths 3dls have been the vogue.
I'm sure Quantum has sails on par with what I mentioned earlier today. I'm personally not sure a dac/mylar blend is good, I would go with straight dacron, or move up to something like the Ullman cal, which is a panel sewn laminate, about the same cost as GOOD/BEST dacron. Then just above is the triradial Pentex/GPL?GP style sails, then above that the string style, ala 3dl, Fiberpath, Tapedrive for North Ullman and UK. The quantum loft here in Seattle seems a bit hit and miss, around, then not around. Pudding may have had better luck with them. The three I've mentioned at least locally ALL have good reviews along with a smaller independent. Actually there are a couple of GOOD independents. We probably have a LOT bigger base of sailboats to work with than Ok has too.

Good luck and enjoy the new rags!
