noreault None at all. I liked it better than the furlex on my current boat.

noreault I had one on previous boat. Very happy with it. Well built. Easy to use and maintain.

SkywalkerII Used one years ago on my Tartan 27. Nicely made, easy to install, very robust. The halyards never made a peep, it worked flawlessly. I changed it out to a Furlex because I started racing and needed to make faster sail changes than it allowed. If your cruising around on the cheep, it's not a bad unit at all.

Alado Furler

I'm looking for firsthand experience, of any kind, with the Alado furler. I'm very cost sensitive right now and it looks like a decent option from what I've read. One concern I have is the behavior of that halyard alongside of the foil. Any noise or flogging? Other issues?

Thanks.
