Re: The opposite line of an out haul?

Sounds like the furling line if you're referring to the headsail. By "spindle", I assume you mean the furler drum. If it's the mainsail you're talking about, then perhaps you mean the downhaul or cunningham? Though neither would necessarily prevent the main from being raised.
