I have no doubt she is an educated person and knows her product. But Hyde builds their sails in the Philippines and some of their reps actually have them built in China to get a better price.
With that being said, I would buy a sail from Judy if the price was right. However, I would take a big pass on Precision.
Spend wisely or not. It is your choice.
I am writing to correct to a mildly insulting and totally dumb-ass remark UnReal made about me in his post.
he accuses me of trying to trick people into thinking I have worked as a "real sailmaker" -- sweating on my knees in a 100 degree loft. Nope. Never did.
I always sign my posts as an Independent Representative for Hyde. I have used the word sailmaking or sailmaker generically. Hyde Sails is a "sailmaker" and I'm fortunate enough to be associated with them.

Anybody who is interested in my role as an Independent Rep for Hyde can click on tabs on my website and read a full page description of what I do, and read all about Hyde's loft in the Philippines. My website has links to Hyde's main website, where everyone can read the impressive resumes of the design and production experts at Hyde.
My name is Judy Blumhorst, and I am proud to be a Hyde distributor. Hyde is "the real thing"
