Often, the simplest product is the best product. The Flexible Furler has
one-eighth the number of parts of competitive systems and is the
easiest to install, operate and maintain. Plus, the Flexible Furler is
backed by an unequaled warranty.
A patented, one-piece, UV stabilized PVC luff extrusion
This luff extrusion is as stiff in torsion as a metal system, and yet
can bend without kinking, unlike metal systems. There are no joints to
fail and it is designed to be winched.
A built-in halyard
Eliminating troublesome halyard swivels and halyard wrap, maximizing reliability whether offshore or close to home.
Our durable one-piece urethane furling drum and stainless steel drum
cover keeps the furling line in place. You can accidentally drop your
anchor onto the Flexible Furler drum and expect it to keep working!
Fail Safe Bearings
Because of the built-in halyard, our rugged bearings see only a fraction
of the load carried by other systems. Smaller Flexible Furlers
typically use a one-piece solid plastic bearing, though some sailors
prefer ball bearings as a convenience option (like having power steering
in a small car). The FF7.0 and 9.0 come with ball bearings standard.
CDI, Inc. uses -+" Torlon balls which roll over dirt easier and need less
maintenance than the -+" balls you find in less rugged systems.
