Re: Anyone buy laminate sails from China Sails?

China Sail Factory is a major production loft in China that makes sails for a lot of the lofts in the US. My friend has had a new main twaron MXL for his J-29. Local loft spec'd it and ordered it from CSF. Sail was nice but had lamination problem that showed up at end of 1st season. CSF made good with a new sail next season as a replacement. He is happy with sail after a couple of seasons.

FWIW, Island Planet sails uses CSF for their laminate sales. Twaron is essentially Kevlar. Get the black twaron as it has better UV resistance.
