Reviews for Contender Low Aspect Polypreg Pro Sail Cloth?

After much research, debate, and even a bit of soul searching, we are planning to purchase offshore sails from Willis Sails, NZ. They made our mainsail when the boat was there 8 years or so ago, and we love it. Here's the question...they are using a premium Dacron made by a Netherlands company and I'm having a hard time getting any detail/reviews on it - Contender Low Aspect Polypreg Pro. They claim it is better than Challenge Marblehead, which is a well known, highly respected fabric made in the US.

Has anyone had any experience, good or bad with this Contender product? Or, can you point me to where I can reviews on the product?

In advance, thanks.
