Spinex Top-Down Spinnaker Furler
Asymmetric spinnaker cloth is both light and fragile and anti-twist cables have a tendency to damage it. The cable spins faster than the sail during furling which means the latter sometimes jams. To overcome this, Profurl thread free-spinning high-density spheres on the anti-twist cable in order to protect the sail from the cable. This technology allows you to keep the sail away from the cable, stop reverse furling, which causes the sail to jam, reduce wear on the sailcloth, make furling easier and faster because the furling sail has a greater diameter than the cable by itself.
Profurl Spinex comes with drum, swivel, cable, end fittings, tack swivel and except for the length of the cable is ready to fit and ready to use out of the box.
Remove the tack swivel and turn your Spinex into a Nex ready to use with gennakers and code zeros. Profurl’s Spin Kit fits on NEX furlers.
Nex Flying Sail Furlers
For light sails (gennaker, code zero) and heavy sails (solent, staysail), Nex has been developed to improve performance of your yacht and ensure safe, optimum deployment of your flying sails.
NEX is made for every sailor, professional or amateur. The furling line is continuous which saves on weight and mass. The furling line is blocked during deployment of the sail, thus preventing accidents.
It is easy to use: quick and ergonomic sail attachment, quick and easy line fitting, simple tuning of the system.
