I would check out the Alado system as well, and I highly recommend it. I was able to furl my jib in when I got hit by a 50 knt gust a couple of years ago and had no problems. I particularly like the fact that the foils don't use pins or sleeves to connect the foils to each other. Each side of the foil slides into the other half which means that there are no weak points along the foil. I have had my Alado system for over four years now and have no complaints at all.
