Re: Top Down Furlers

I have the same system and have a lot of problems with spinnaker over wrap. we tried the furler as a top down and found that the torque rope is way to light to handle top down furling. there is way to much twist in the rope by the time the top starts to wind up. it does work on the the A4 and A3 but not on the A2 it is to big
