Re: Selden GX top down asym furler

key thing on top down is the torque rope . Carver makes the best. if the torque rope twists to much during the furl it will untwist inside the sail and cause the sail to get a reverse rap and not unfurl. the seldon unit is married to one sail. there are others that can be used on many sails because they can be detached from the torque rope. the sail needs to a flatter reaching spinnaker with a soft head panel. a stiff head panel will not furl and get caught on the forestay. the furler needs to be mounted as far away from the forestay as possible at both the top and bottom. torque rope must be hoisted tight during furling/ unfurling. I like the idea of the beads on the profurl furler should solve the twisting problem. but have not tried one yet
