I bought this Genoa last year. Its a great sail and in fine shape but it was cut for a roller furling. I used it a couple times with a lifting strop to fill in where the furling unit should be but it is really meant for a furler and is under served in my inventory. When I bought it on the forum the seller described it as follows:

"Bainbridge DIAX 130P Grey Pentex, built 2012 by Martin at Somerset Sails in New York.150 Genoa has luff tape, lightweight adhesive sun cover....
Original owner used half a summer, we kept these rolled and used for summer cruising. Everything is great condition & ready to hoist."

It came from the Lake of the Ozarks so never saw big wind. I called Martin at Somerset sails and he spoke highly of the material. We tried the sail once in heavy breeze and were flying until my reefing block for the matching Main broke and we whipped a tear in the main at a batten as a result of gear failure. I've convinced myself to keep the main as a backup as its in such great shape (minus the tear) and will have it repaired.

$500 for Genoa plus shipping. I'm in Eastern Canada. Note the exchange rate - that's about $375 USD

Hello Brandon - Is the sail still available? Do you know the size of the luff tape? I have a Harken Mark IV furling setup which I believe takes up to 5.5mm finished luff tape.

Yes it is. I use size 6 tape - the foil is the original and it seems to have the same properties.

Hey Brandon,

Still for sail? 🤣 if so, and it doesnt move, I'm in Cape Breton and would love to nip over and pick it up in the new year. Let me know! I blew up both my dacron gennoas this year... 😫
