2017 lasers - Any good?

Thread starter #1
I'm looking at purchasing a new laser and have the opportunity to get a 2017 event laser. I met a sailor at a Sunfish event and he said the 2017 Sunfish were manufactured out of China this year and said the boat is not as good. There were lots of problems with the boats "falling apart" on the water.

Anyone know of the 2017 Lasers are made out of China and their quality? Thank you!!

LaserPerformance builds its Lasers in Banbury, England, but the move to build the Sunfish in China has made people think whether that's the way that Laser production is going as well. Interestingly enough, there are rumours that Sunfish production would be moved to England: Sunfish 2017 Worlds | SailingForums.com
