Well I have a furler (came with the boat), but it works with my hanked on sails. I have a 110 jib that is appropriate for winter conditions and a #3 that I use in the summer on the bay. Furling is not reefing, and while I have jib cars that adjust from the cockpit, I would strongly advocate a sail change over a furled reef. So many problems can arise with the lack of ability to reduce sail area in a hurry that I don't see a reason to risk it.
