ProFurl NEX Furlers by Wichard

The next generation in furlers and are designed for improved deployment of your flying sails. Made for lightweight sails (gennakers, screacher, light genoa or code zeros) or with heavy sails (solent, storm jib or staysails). The lower terminal is a clevis snap shackle, while the upper is a halyard shackle. This halyard shackle varies depending on model for what is included. The 0.9 and 1.5 model come with an HR Wichard shackle. The 2.5 and 5.0 model come with a MX Halyard Shackle. Included with all furlers are clevis pin snap shackle and stainless steel thimble.

Installation is designed to be easy and painless. The I Connect system allows you to quickly attach or remove sails with single handed operation, a fully captive pin and no risk of fouling with adjacent lines. A quick fit line fitting enables you to attach your continuous line quickly and with the ability to leave the furling line in position on deck. Last is the tune and lock system. With a single screw you can fit and adjust your system. With less excessive line friction and adaption to your deck layout, it makes this furler a breeze. Some of the other benefits of a Profurl furler include:
  • Performance: optimization of component sizes and weights, optimal spool diameter for improved ease of handling.
  • Safety: the furling line is blocked during deployment of sail and thus prevents accidents.
  • Easy to use: quick and ergonomic sail attachment device, quick and easy line fitting, simple tuning of the system.
  • Innovative terminals: NEX offers a wide range of terminals offering functionality, lightness and optimised size.
