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.
I'm assuming this post was in response to mine. It makes little sense to me so I want to respond. "Furling is not reefing", but you would advocate a sail change over a "furled reef"? Though you are technically correct, as I think you just confirmed, the term reefing a Head sail is used to describe partially furling it, as opposed to furling it completely.
Your jib cars are adjusable from the cockpit, yet you think it's safer to go on the fore deck to perform a sail change?
You're concerned about reducing sail area in a hurry? I can single handedly partially (aka reef), or completely furl my head sail in less than a minute. I'd like to see someone douse and set a new head sail in that amount of time. Now...Is a reefed Headsail as efficient as a properly sized hanked on sail? Absoulutely not (IMHO). Maybe we can agree there!
Once again, off topic, but I couldn't let these comments go.
