Sail-World.com : Product of the Week: The Gen2 Furler
Product of the Week: The Gen2 Furler


'Ronstan GEN2 continuous line furler'    .

The development of the continuous line furler caused quite a change in the usual way furling sails are used in both racing and cruising boats. This week's product of the week is the new Gen2 Furler, with some significant improvements.

Ronstan’s Continuous Line Furlers have been developed over recent years for use on some of the world’s top racing syndicates. Encouraged by their feedback, design enhancements have been incorporated, resulting in the Gen 2 Furler range that now puts great performance and reliability within the reach of cruising and racing sailors alike.

The Gen 2 Continuous Line Furler Range offers numerous benefits as a result of product testing and evolution of the Continuous Line Furler range. Some of the many advances in technology and performance include:

Advanced drum technology: The range matches drum diameters to load ratings to provide the optimum balance between speed and ease of furling. The drums incorporate a sophisticated furling line groove profile and cross-hole geometry to grip the furling line securely when furling, but release it when deploying the sail.

Secure, snag free connections: Furlers and top swivels have retained quick release clevis pins and a low profile shackle pin head on the top swivel.

Rotation stop accessory: A compact rotation stop can be added to compatible models of furlers to ensure inadvertent unfurling of the sail doesn’t occur.

Maintenance free bearing system: Furlers and top swivels feature a factory sealed, maintenance free bearing. Roller bearing sets run on hardened races for smooth high load performance.

Dedicated Top-Down models for soft luff sails: Ronstan Gen 2 furlers are now available in dedicated top-down models with practical accessories such as soft loop shackles and top swivel lashing pins to provide the perfect solution.

Easy continuous line installation and removal: Gen 2 furlers feature a clever continuous line installation and removal system that requires neither tools nor disassembly. The new system is ideal for systems where the continuous line can’t be removed from the boat, such as when it is routed through under-deck channels or the underline covering panels.
