You sound just a little to glee-full about all of this.
Cuben Fiber vs Cuben Tech. Cuben Fiber goes to North Sails."
Well, you're welcome to your interpretation of my words. That's the beauty of the internet, isn't it?
I don't make fabric, fiber or anything like it.
From my perspective as both a gear junkie and as a manufacturer, the more choices that are available to the market, the better. Personally, I want to see the largest variety of nonwoven products possible. I'm convinced they're the future.
The resources of North Sails will seriously increase the development of new stuff from the Cuben guys, and from what I've seen of upcoming products, Cuben is making the right business call. Furthermore, I'd much rather have a tested technical fiber than retasked fishing line in any product my life depends on. Or the lives of my customers.
