References for new online sails?

It's time to purchase new sails for our girl. Yes we want a good quality offshore grade sails but without breaking the bank. The question to you is... has anyone bought sails online from a company called "Fareast Sails" from Hong Kong?? They appear to be the real deal, but we all know how real deals can be??

Re: References for new online sails?

Use the search function and you will find lots of previous posts regarding Far East Sails. There has been a considerable lot of dissatisfaction expressed, so careful research is a good idea before you send any money!

If you care much about your sails, my personal advice is that the extra cost of using a local sailmaker (if any) is worthwhile. Others disagree...
