In Topic: Mainsail reefing w/ webbing on leech?

Loop is spectra and will be fine.  Just run the reefing line through the webbing.  You will be using a winch to tighten the reefing line anyways so a little friction won't hurt.  I would be running all uncovered spectra in this location

PBO drops about 12% of its strength every year whether it is sitting on the spool in the shop or one your boat.  Damage just speeds the process up.  Are you sure you don't have Aramid?  The cracked cover would still be bad but the degradation from time wont be as bad.  Note if the manufacturer tells you its time for replacement it is time fore replacement.  This isn't them just trying to make a quick buck.
