Choosing a Rolling Furler

I bought a project boat with snapped foils on a Selden Furlex Type B MKII. They're snapped in two places and bend badly.

Specs ----
MORGAN 30-1 sailboat specifications and details on
The Sail Luff Max is 37.5'
End Tape: 38" from tack
- I only know these numbers because they're written on the manual the PO kept.

I'm finding it impossible to find/buy replacement foils, so it looks like I'll have to buy a new rolling furler.

How do I choose a brand of rolling furler? I'm trying to wrap my head around the rigging and be an informed shopper. What should I avoid? What features and specs should I look for? I'm looking for "good enough" and "affordable".

My boat is a Morgan 30-1

Re: Choosing a Rolling Furler

I would start with the most recent PS article on furling gear and work from there.
