Luft tape size

I have a 30' hunter with a non- stock roller furling. I'm looking for a new or used genoa. The bead on the luft looks to be about 3/16". Is this a #6?
thanks for any help

Re: Luft tape size

Luff tape size is measured in 32nds of an inch, I think. So #6 would be 6/32=3/16.

Re: Luft tape size

3/16" is a #6.
If you know what make and model your furler is, I can probably confirm the luff tape size.
