Selden Furlex question

I am off to have a look at a boat tomorrow that has a Selden Furlex in-mast furling system. I am trying to get a comprehensive idea of what this boat is worth and can't seem to find a quote for this system anywhere online. Does anyone have one of these systems? How much did it cost you? Furthermore what is your opinion of this system, has it met your expectations?

I have Selden Furlex jib furler and rigid vang. they are 22 yrs old and still going strong. Very well engineered and built. easy to rebuild.

However, I have never seen their inmast furler.

A Selden in mast furler is part of a Selden mast system, I do not believe you can buy one separate from a mast. However Selden is one of the largest mast makers around. We also have a Furlex jib furler and are very happy with it. Also 22 yrs old. The cost of this is not generally added to the value of the boat as an extra cost option but just there.. at least that is the way I would approach it.
