I talked with the rigging guys and explained that we have a roller furler. He said to go with standard headboard shackle since there is no way to "quickly" bring down a roller furling sail like you would with a standard jib. That saved me some money too, since i am willing to use a shackle key to undo the furler shackle if i need to switch to a different sail for any reason.
