Re: Roller Furling failure .
My furler cost me around $100 and has no way of getting a halyard wrap.It has had no failures in the 28 years I've been using it, nor do I know anyone else who has had one fail ,in the last 30 years since I designed it. One moving part, a one piece unit. No connections to break. Build your own furler.
It is similar to the Famet, and Simplicite rig.
