So, at risk of being accused of trying to kill our one-design game, what would be so bad about Laser doing a bit of a redesign? Composite top section AND a slightly modified sail design? After all, most of the complaints that go on this forum involve either broken top sections, or new sails being worthless after a week. It wouldn't take much effort for the sailmaker to add a tiny bit of luff curve higher up, which would let us use a softer section without any major loss of performance. Sure, we may need to re-learn how to use our cunningham and vang, but it wouldn't take us long!
