furling system HELP!

Is there anyone that can help me out, I am looking for feedback on the Crusing Design flexible furling system. My Pro Furl snapped this weekend breaking the forestay. I am not a racer, I am a novice and need dependability.
Thanks for any info

What size/kind of boat is this for.

Personally, I like the Furlex that I have on my boat.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

CDI is easy

to install DYI, you can even do it with the mast up! The hardest thing to do is unroll the plastic luff track and get it to stay flat. A couple of days in the hot sun should do it. Then you have to tie off the jib halyard to the front of the boat and make it real tight so you can release the forestay. (it helps to loosen the backstay also) when you have the turnbuckle apart follow the instructions closely! You don't get a second chance if you cut the luff track too short! Again, the plastic luff track HAS TO BE STRAIGHT!
good luck!
Denise
