What makes a Flexible Furler different from the rest?
The Flexible Furler has one-eighth the number of parts of competitive systems and is the easiest to install, operate and maintain.
Plus, the Flexible Furler is backed by an unequaled warranty.
A patented, one-piece, UV stabilized PVC luff extrusion
This luff extrusion is as stiff in torsion as a metal system, and yet can bend without kinking, unlike metal systems. There are no joints
to fail and it is designed to be winched.
A built-in halyard
Eliminates troublesome halyard swivels and halyard wrap, maximizing reliability whether offshore or close to home.
Our durable one-piece urethane furling drum and stainless steel drum cover keeps the furling line in place. You can accidentally drop
your anchor onto the Flexible Furler drum and expect it to keep working!
Fail Safe Bearings
Because of the built-in halyard, our rugged bearings see only a fraction of the load carried by other systems. Smaller Flexible Furlers
typically use a one-piece solid plastic bearing, though some sailors prefer ball bearings as a convenience option (like having power
steering in a small car).
The FF7.0 and 9.0 come with ball bearings standard. We use ½" Torlon balls which roll over dirt easier and need less maintenance
than the ¼" balls you find in less rugged systems.
The flexible furler is designed to be installed over your existing stay, cutting in half the installation time.
It is recommended that you rinse your bearing with a hose every 5 years (a 5 minute procedure).That's it! And you don't have to drop
your sail to rinse the bearing.
