Just noticed that even your spinpole is carbon fiber.
TB, the genoa furler drum rotates any way you want, left or right, and all I have is a continuous loop that is cleated on the back at the cockpit, by 2 cleats.

See the red ropes here..they go into the furler, along the cockpit...

This system is simple, very light and trouble free..also allows a loow foot genoa to be installed to increase performance..

Get this...I have a twin slot genoa track, (to do twin gib downwind) and it allows the furling of both sails together!!
