Has anyone had a problem with 2017 Best Roca's tearing?

Postby SalmonSlayer » Sun Jul 22, 2018 9:04 pm

A friend of mine had 2017 5, 7 and 9m Best Rocas get a spontaneous canopy tear. I know that Best is gone for the most part and there is no chance for support. I am just wondering if anyone else has had this problem too.

Not interested in getting into a Best bashing fest.

I have a 2017 10m Roca that is fine, and a 9m and 7m TS. All fine. Admittedly my 2016 12m TS gets the most use by far, but is fine too. I think Best went to Teijin cloth in 2017, the 2016 is something else. Teijin should be better though.

Are the tears in the virgin canopy material or along a seam?
