The Wichard ProFurl NEX Furling system has all the components you look for in an endless line furling system.
Its lightweight, easy to install, can be used with light and heavy weight sails and is nearly maintenance free, but that's just the basics. NEX ProFurlers have an I-Connect quick sail attachment switch on the upper swivel and lower drum that enables you to quickly attach or remove sails in just a single handed maneuver.
The Quick-fit line fitting design gives you the ability to secure or remove the endless line in just seconds. This easy access feature allows for the furling line to be left in position on deck when changing out furling systems.
Unlike other furling systems the HEX series has a unique Tune & Lock feature that makes installation and adjustment a breeze. With just a single screw you can fit and adjust you system for less line friction and adaption to your decks layout. The NEX system includes a drum with a clevis pin snap shackle, and an upper swivel with shackle.
Thimbles, endless furling line, AT-cable and an optional (but recommended) MX Halyard shackle are all sold separately.
