Rick... Knothead is in Florida, Sony is in Montreal, so no, they are not the same.

btw.. PM me with another username choice.. email addresses are not advisable.

Sony I am interested in lubricating a Hyde without dropping. Any chance you took pictures of the process or can say more about how you did this?

Re: some version of the Hyde Streamstay One Solid Rod Furling System

rbyham, your furler looks to be a younger generation than mine. The freeing up didn't last long and I ended up removing it completely. Inside the bearings had fallen out of their casings. There was little grease left.
Allan keys removed bolts holding the drum, and became independent of the foil.
The jib halyard attached to bow to support the mast.
Undo the furler from the bow and let it rest in a rowboat beside the sailboat.
Open the holder of the bearings (2), and clean out.
Replace the bearings with your fingers, and grease.
Bearings are a basic stock SKFs at $6 each. I can look for the numbers, but is yours the same?
I don't know.

Re: some version of the Hyde Streamstay One Solid Rod Furling System

Thanks Sony. I looked into the furlers (jib and main) today after reading this thread. It sounds like these furlers can create problems but as i tested mine today they seem to turm very easily and smoothly. So maybe I am ok for now but need to be prepared to rebuild in the future. I realize they are considered old technology but on I tend to really enjoy keeping older stuff working well so long as it is not unsafe. So for now I will just use and monitor... thanks.

Re: some version of the Hyde Streamstay One Solid Rod Furling System

Sony... I am getting close to the point of activating these Hyde furlers (I have jib and main) and am curious about rope size? I see on the rigrite site wire/rope furling line is recommended. I would prefer to go all rope. Do you know can the drum handle enough 1/4" double braid for a 135? How about 5/16"? I would like to go as big as possible for handling comfort... Thanks.
