The Unit 1 Reflex Top Down Furler for Code Zero is rated at 1.5T MWL for boats to 11 m (36').
This system is a new and simplified approach to downwind and off wind sail control! The past generation of free-flying sail furlers often resulted in partial or uneven furling. Reflex furlers provide sailors confidence that their free-flying gennakers, spinnakers, and code sails will furl with quickly and in a controlled way. The result? Sailors use downwind sails more often—especially when sailing shorthanded. The compact drive unit is easier to handle than other designs. Pull the furling line and the drive unit reacts reflexively to rotate the torsion cable, immediately transferring torque to the head swivel without unwanted corkscrewing delaying the response. The head swivel reacts instantly, spinning the sail smoothly and completely from top to bottom for an even roll-up and super-tight wrap. The furled spinnaker lowers easily to the deck, ready for the next hoist.
Using the Reflex torsion cable with a code zero sail: The Reflex torsion cable is designed for furling an asymmetric spinnaker and transmits torque at lower halyard/luff loads than other types of torque cables. The Reflex torsion cable improves furling when used with a code zero type sail. IMPORTANT! Always make sure there is a tension handling line.
The quick-release modular T-fitting allows single drive unit to handle multiple sails.
Includes 2:1 threaded adapter for attachment to bowsprit.
