Q Are MSB an authorised distributor for Laser Performance?

A No, we are entirely independent of Laser Performance (Europe) Ltd. 

Q Can I use MSB products at Association events and are your items 'class legal?'

A No, where our products are specified as replacements, they cannot be used at Association events. MSB replacement parts should not be confused with official parts bearing the Laser® registered trademark. 

Q Are the sails the same cloth as the originals?
A Yes, 3.8 dacron, extremely durable, with a longer life and long lasting shape.

Q Are the sails the same cut?
A Yes, they are exact replacements with the same panel sizes and batten lengths.

Q Are the sails competitive?
A Our feedback informs us: Yes, very.

Q Are your spars the same quality?
A Yes. Marine graded anodised, stainless steel fittings, and most importantly sleeved where required providing the same bend characteristics and allowing the sail to be set perfectly.

Q How does your X/D kit differ from the genuine article.
A It is virtually the same. Same purchases giving perfect control and ease of use.

Q Why use a 'breathable' Top Cover?
A Our breathable top cover will allow your hull and spars to dry out. Polyester covers attract moisture which over time increases the weight of the hull and our cover will help prevent this.

Q Are your replacement foils as good as the genuine?
A Almost identical in weight and appearance. You can hardly tell the difference.

Q If I am not happy with my purchase can I return it?
A Yes, simply return it unused within 7 days in the packaging and we will exchange or refund. We want you to be 100% satisfied with our products.

Q If our fleet wish to adopt your replacement sails and/or other products would we receive a bulk order discount?
A This depends on the number of orders. Contact us to discuss.
