I just got my new (fully battened mainsail & yankee) sails from Kern. Being singlehanded I decided I could use some 'help' to make it easier to manage flaking this new/stiff sail (esp in a breeze ;).

I've looked at the catalogs and am surprised at the cost of lazyjacks ($2-300) for what appears to be essentially a few small blocks, cleats and some line (then again, I've never used lazyjacks so maybe they're priced accordingly).

Anyone have any pros/cons/recommendations for a particular manufacturer? Or, since I believe I understand the concept would it be cheaper if I just made my own?

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!
