Profurl R430 Racing Furler System - 30 Rod Headstay 60ft
The Profurl R430 Racing Furler system is a manual reefing furler with a 60 ft 30 ROD headstay luff extrusion designed to be reliable, tough and maintenance-free. Designed for racing sailboats, this system delivers an optimal strength to weight ratio and smooth furling even under load.
All of the components for the drum have been selected to increase durability and lower friction. The drum is made with UV resistant, high impact plastic with a smooth surface to prevent lines from jamming and chafing. The open drum design prevents jams and gives access to the furling line in case of an override. The stainless steel drum cage prevents the furling line from jumping off the drum and allows for the furling line to be led in any direction off of the furler. A locking device secures the system at the base of the forestay.
The C6 carbon steel ball bearings in the drum and top swivel are permanently sealed and packed in waterproof grease. The unique double lip seal system prevents water and impurities such as dust from entering the hydraulically sealed ball bearing compartments, making the system maintenance free easy to use.
The lightweight and strong black anodised luff extrusion wraps around your forestay with a super sleek elliptical shape, delivering aerodynamic performance on each tack while reducing luff tension and preventing twists. The asymmetric luff grooves make for easy hoisting and prevents jams. The removable sail feeder allows the top swivel to be dropped down and easily removed. A wrapstop is fixed to the top of the stay to prevent the halyard from wrapping and reduce line chafing.
Installation is fairly simple, in most cases fitted over your current forestay. The included long linkplate can be cut and drilled to customize the height of the drum off the deck. Additional lengths of extrusion and clevis pins are available for order; give APS a call if you need different sizing.
Profurl offers the industry leading warranty on their racing furler systems, which are built for the racer who is looking for durability and dependability.
