Whilst I own a large quiver of the 08 North sails, I actually wouldn't recommend them. I think the monofilm is dodgy this year as you may have read in my other thread. Very strange. I am guessing that it was not the same supplier as in earlier years and/or different spec for the monofilm.
I would love to ask this question direct to North (like you can with Maui Sails & Barry) but alas we will never know the answer.
Oh well .. hopefully they will hold out for a few years, then I'll switch to Sailworks or Simmer.
