Need some info on Roller Furling

I was looking through some older Practical Sailors newsletters (July 05) and came across an article on furling leads. As a new sailor a sentence caught my attention. "If you have to use a winch to furl the headsail, something's wrong". Exactly what does this mean. I have profurl and without the winch I cannot imagine getting my 150 rolled up.
One other question, what is the correct size line for the furler?
