Re: Furler recommendation?

I replaced my 30 year old Hood furler last spring. I went with the Harken MKIV and have been very pleased after one season. If you go with Harken, I was advised to stay away from the cruising version of the Harken furler line. Not only does it not have a swivel at the head, I was told the materials used on the MKIV are of higher quality. Well worth the extra $400. I replaced my standing rigging at the same time. I gave the riggers my old standing rigging and they replicated. I was then able to install the furler myself.
