Continous line furler for Cruising Chute?

Anybody have any experience with the Facnor continous line furler? Need to upgrade my chute and want to try something different.

Suggestions?

Comments?

Found the answer on another thread...

Yes I have an FX2500 with the AFX conversion kit.
So I use the same furler for three different tasks.

With the AFX kit (attachments for the torsion stiff rope) I use it for my asymmetric. This is for all practical purposes the same as the AFX2500.

It works great - easy to furl/unfurl.
When you hoist the sail it is only a thin sausage much more compact than a sock.

I also use this furler for my asymmetric and a solent jib.

I'll second knuterikt's endorsement, Facnor makes a nice piece of gear... I just have their earliest, smallest continuous line furler, it's still working flawlessly after many years...

I only use it with a Code 0, however, haven't yet had any opportunity to try a conventional asymmetrical with a furler, I still use a sock for mine...

Have a look at this post Retractable Bowsprit DIY

Facnor give you two options.
ASYM-FX furler - dedicated furler for asymmetric Asymmetric spinnaker furlers

Or the FX Endless line gennaker & code zero furlers - Facnor
with the FX / ASYM-FX Facnor - Furler system, gennaker & code 0 furlers, facslide

This is what I have, both solutions work the same way but the combination I have let me use the same furler for more sails (Asymmetric, Code 0 and Solent jib).

Gennaker=Asymmetric)
