Rooster OD Replacement Sail for the Laser® Standard. The sail cloth (3.8oz with a heavy yarn tempering which makes it perform extremely well against the official sail). This is a quality product and will be ideal for those who are looking for the perfect training sail. Our sail has a little more gust response than the official - making it ideal for sailing on inland waters.

Tuning Guide:
The radial cut standard sail does not use the same set up as the original cross cut sail. It is actually similar to the radial (5.7 - the radial), in that it requires lots more vang/kicker tension to bring the fullness back away from the luff. I have heard that lighter sailors have got away with a very flat sail on flat water using their outhaul. This sail is also quite powerful. The leach stands for longer than the original cross cut, which would work well on inland waters. Those who have been the happiest when changing to the new official radial cut sail have been in the heavier weight range.

Please note that this sail is provided folded and includes a folded sail bag and battens. Sail numbers and Long sail bags (available to order separately below)

It does not come supplied with the Laser® class insignia.

Please note : If you require the Sail Numbers in your order to be applied by Rooster, this can be done as an extra service and is a chargeable item. (Any sail and any configuration).

Excellent Sail and Fast Shipping

Rooster's replacement / training / practice mainsail is of excellent quality and a good value.

Was pleasantly surprised to discover that the sail arrived with lightly penciled lines indicating where the sail numbers are to be placed (both starboard and port sides); same for the country codes (both as per ILCA rules).

Another pleasant surprise was the 8 black telltales with stick-on pads.

And their shipping was fast.

The white fiberglass battens provided are a bit heavy and stiff; I recommend replacing them with the black Rooster battens, which are lighter and more flexible (and reasonably priced).

As another reviewer mentioned, the folding of the sail done for shipping puts a crease on the window, but it comes out with time and proper care. There are also some loose threads fraying from the sailcloth where it is cut for the window; this is easily handled with a little trimming now and then. For the price and overall quality and shape of the sail, these things do not detract from the excellent value of the sail.

Easy transaction with item as expected but less than perfect finish.

The sail had a number of threads left untidy. It would have been better finished if these threads had been cut off. The way the sail was folded and parcelled for delivery has left a crease across the sail window that will take quite some time to stretch out. Again this could have been improved with a better way of parcelling.

Sorry to hear about your sail, we have noted your comments and will make the necessary changes to the thread ends, and the packing/folding process, so it does not crease the window.

Rooster Sales
