I ended up with CDI because of the internal halyard. When beating, I didn't need the extra noise of a flapping halyard the full length of the forestay.
I'm with jimq26. I actually bought the CDI furler for budget reasons. Our local agent in Annapolis is excellent and this was further incentive. In addition, CDIs have a good reputation with my friendly local marine services guy who recommended it. I have been very pleased with it so far.
Incidentally, I find it hard to believe that some posters get so hot under the collar about a ****in' furler. Get a life, guys!!
