Re: Jib furler is hard to furl since putting up new sail...ideas?

My guess is that it's something to do with the new furling line...

Could it be binding on the drum?
Do you need to change the alignment of it as it enters the drum?
Have you missed out one of the guides on the stanchions?
Is it jamming in one of the stanchion guides?

If it's none of those, try adjusting the halyard tension.

Good luck!
