Re: Top Down Furlers

Thanks Overbored for taking the time to share your experience.
I have just had a bowsprit made with a 2:1 tack line that runs through the pole and back to the windlass and the furler will connect to that. I have also recently upgraded my spi halliards to dyneema so i think i should be able to get decent tension on the stay. My kite is more a reaching asymmetric so i am hoping it will suit. I will check the head as you suggest. Allspars in the UK supply the Karver product and they use a Navtec stay - the larger size apparently. They have also offered to crew on my boat at the regatta in October to show me how to use it. I think i will go for it - i find the snuffer just too hard in a rolly sea.
