Sorry missed the key word LOOK less monofilm based :-)
I think as some of the top end sails like the new Severne wave sails use visually solid laminates, then that is feeding down to a fashion for coloured finish even on monofilm. Look at RRD vogue wave for example.
So as ever fashion moves in circles. Got a few oldies in the back of the garage that it will be time to bring out in spring.....
It has been said before that whatever we think the high vis sails do make us... more visible.... to the public.
