Example of Pre-feeder: Harken Carbo Racing Foil Pre-Feeder
It prevents/lessens the amount of binding / jamming of the luff tape of a jib/genoa AT the entrance of the 'slot' of the furler foil.

Good point is made by Waltthesalt about 'balancing' the sail plan ... as you cant simply fly a 'storm jib' with a non-reefed mainsail - the imbalance of sail area will surely cause extreme 'weather helm', etc. The typical storm jib is usually flown with a storm trysail or at least a TRIPLE reefed mainsail.
