I am shopping for a new main and 135 Genoa.
I have priced out North Sails. Any advice welcome!

Also looking for a mainsail, so far two both interesting quotes for me are from:
I think the Precision sails vs Mack are opposites. Precision offers some very low end stuff (with better options as well), combined with nickel and dime adders - or worse "packages" with overinflated values. Mack are made in USA, most other lofts will farm out to offshore lofts where the local loft is more of a middleman - that matters more for some and less for others.
Once caveat is that I have only spoken with Chic, no formal quote yet.
If you can wait till fall Catalina Direct always offer a15% discount on there Ultman Sails. They are good quality and are very familar with Catalinas.

what type of sailing are you doing?
if you are like most of us, for pleasure, coastal NOT RACING, just looking for a great sail at a great price I would recommend Rolly Tasker Sails, my boat came with them (a former charter boat, rode hard and put away wet it’s whole life), they were well used when I got it and I still got 4 years more use out of the main, the Genoa is still going though I did have to resew some of the UV protection last winter.
I liked them so much I became a rep for them.

I sail with North since years. Last fall, we order new main and genoa, cloth Npl tour, very light and performing extremely well.
Saying that, we use to race quite a lot, if not your case, probably you can go for a lower North cloth. Their new product 3di Nordac, using their 3di technology but with Dacron, is quite impressive at a competitive price.
