Re: Yet another roller furling question

Aha. gotcha. So I am thankful for the pennant on this sail. But in terms of designing/ordering new sails (eventually), wouldn't it be better to have a sail whose luff length is closer to the actual length of the headstay (extrusion) so that the halyard swivel is at the top of the furler and the sail extends as far down as required? Given that you can reef by furling don't you want as much sail area as possible?
