Furlex furling feedback

I have had a furlex on my boat for about 10 years now. I''ve found that it always rolls smother and easier if the halyard tension is eased before rolling. an overly tight tension puts a lateral load on the swivel bearings making for a difficult furl. its also a lot better for the life of your sail to have the tension eased when not in use.
