Taffeta filmless w Technora

Recommended Posts

I got a quotation for a jib. Membrane is taffeta with Technora inside, filmless  What are your experience with that kind of cloth? Stretch, longevity, mechanical abuse etc. I don't have possibility to compare prices from other sailmakers, is 80$ per mq (roughly) a decent price?

My jib in a similar materiel is on its fourth season and it is holding up well despite some abuse in shorthanded racing, no tendencies of delamination and shape is still OK.

I would suspect that like any technology like this,  it's good till the glue gives out and the sail starts to degrade rapidly.....   I had a taffeta over 3dl,  early version,  and it was great until it wasn't, but overall I was happy with the longevity. In my case I bought the taffeta version for added protection. 

YMMV
