Our club Feva Jibs are starting to deteriorate.

Might buy new as its about 60 each for the repair.

We have all Dacron "Club" ones at the moment. 

Should I buy more club ones or go for the Race mylar ones? We lend one of the better Fevas out for racing. Do the race jibs make a big difference?

As far as I know they stopped using mylar jibs on the fevas a while back, not sure the difference on a club jib or a racing jib. Speak to RS and they'l tell you

At 60 for a repair I would bite the bullet and buy a brand new one or a good second hand one

Edit; just read the rigging guide on the RS site and it seems like the race jib is just bigger. Go for that one if the boat gets raced. I also expect there are more of them second hand about than the small club ones anyway
