German canvas, Sonnendeck canvas or Stayfast Top

My plastic window on my top has finally split and I am ready for a glass top. I have been looking at the Robbins tops at topsonlince.com.

They offer the top in 3 different materials: German canvas ($699), Sonnendeck canvas ($650) and Stayfast (599). Having had a Stayfast top on my Miata years ago I wonder if the canvas is worth the extra money. Any opinions?

It's amazing the price difference in shops to get it installed. A local shop quoted $650 which I though was too much. I then called a couple shops in Phoenix and they want wanted $900 and $1000. Guess $650 is not that bad huh?

I would reconsider the Robbins brand. I know a few miata people that are not 100% happy with their Robbins top, while I have heard nothing but good comments about Gahh tops.

That said, I would like to know what everyones opinion is of the different materials too.

I have a Robbins top, and it seems that people on this forum are overwhelmingly satisfied with their Robbins tops.
