Re: Furler recommendation?

I have been using the one described in my book, since 1982. Once the sail is up, one moving part.Cost me under $100 to build.No problems . Friends switched from that kind to the far more expensive, commercially produced kind. When I asked what the difference was, they said "Zero difference."
