Here's my follow up. I went with the Rolly Tasker 130%, 7.3 oz Dacron, padded luff and Sunbrella UV protection for $1550 plus $32 shipping. Arrived on time and looks very nicely and sturdily made. Just sailed with it for 2 days and works well, points much better than my old bagged out genoa. The one thing that leaves me perplexed and a bit annoyed is the clew cringle is too small to tie both my 9/16" jib sheets into like I did on my old sail. I will write to them and ask about it but it's too late to change now. What were they thinking? That I would be using expensive thin racing lines or something? Right now I have a few loops of Amsteel (supposed to be as strong as steel) tied through the cringle and tied my jib sheets into this. Any other suggestions on attaching them?

The secret to sailing is good judgment. Good judgment comes from experience. Experience comes from bad judgment.
