I don't find this answer about their selection of sailcloth credible. And, to me, that's a significant issue, because a sail is only as good as the cloth it's make from.
Precsion Sailoft's website says they build their sails from
5.2 oz Premium Challenge Dacron
6.5 oz Premium Challenge Dacron
7.6 oz Premium Challenge Dacron
Challenge doesn't make High Mass Fiber Weave in those weights.
Buyers should make sure they're getting what they bargained for. Don't pay top dollar for vaguely described sailcloth. Ask for a precise description of what you're paying for.
PS. Bainbridge, a well known company, makes cloth in those weights. but they don't make any high mass weaves.
