Need New Genoa and staysail furlers


Recommended Posts

So - time to replace the 30 year old profurls. They both failed last year, rebuilt both, but not very happy with the condition of the castings, etc, and am not likely to trust them again

I quite like the reefrites - I like the 'kiwi slides' as they are a lot easier to manage when on your own and you have to put a headsail back up Also quite like the locking system as a back up for the furler line.

Cons?  -weight, spares away from NZ, harder to install than harken, perhaps dont take the depth out of the sail as well when partly furled....

So what has everyone else put on recently and why?
