Re: Spinnaker sock: North or ATN

The North sock uses an injection moulded bell while the ATN uses a Kevlar laminated bell. I imagine that is the basic reason for the difference in price. AFAIK the ATN still sets the standard for snuffers.

Check the used sail sites on the web - they frequently have ATN's very cheap, some near new as a lot of people decide they don't like using a snuffer.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
