With pro furl no halyard wrap; no lubing, no rinsing. No muss. Mines 20 years old and still going strong.

Just wondering?
I bought my Harken IV for the same reason as T37chef. I liiked the idea of not having a sealed bearing systems. My old Profurl rusted at the bearing case and compromised the seal.

I also found the Harken furls the sail equally, while the profurl did not. Both are fine units.
