Does anyone have experience with a Facnor mainsail furler system and are you happy with it?

Yes a lot of it, and very happy with it. Good furler, probably one of the best in the market.

Check their website.

The FT-10 Flying Tigers are using the Facnor units. Not many complaints on it thus far as they kick butt on most everything in their classes.

Sorry I had to go dig this post up, I posted it today elswhere.



Mine is a problem free no hassle furler, that works just fine.

This is what they use in the Volvo also. Its called a code zero. Very good, one single line in and out. Only jams if you insert an elephant there.








The furler is called a Code Zero, and for my boat it was custom built. Here is the manufacturer FACNOR. Once opened clock in Custom and then code zero.
