Is good stuff. But -
The normal cruising product is the SD range which is fine apart from the halyard
swivel which is like most other makes quite lightly built. They also do a much more expensive LS/LX/RX version furler
which is much heavier and a good choice if you can spring to that financially.
However, I am not sure if this is still the case as Facnor have changed their foil sections a bit in the last few years (so you will need to check if planning on doing the following) but the halyard
swivel from the heavy range fitted onto the foil of the normal SD range and I would recommend making that choice if possible if you sail alot, especially in heavy conditions or long term cruising
- the heavy swivel has a "X" at the end of the product prefix code.
You will find that the heavy halyard swivel is heavy in price
but is the choice I would make (from my own experience using both the LS/LX/RX and the SD swivels)
. It is also heavy in weight, being at least several times the weight of the normal SD one.
