I had a Pro Furl and a hidden fitting broke, I replaced the Pro Furl with the Kiwi Reef Rite! Not to be confused with the Aussie Reef Furl which is not as substantial)(This is an excellent unit, no problems in five years of over 40,000 miles of ocean cruising!
When comparing prices, you need to consider the cost of the headstay as well. The Pro Furl and other units can go on over your existing rigging
, but the Reef Rite is a complete unit, with a new headstay, so the up front cost may seem a bit higher than other quoted units, but if you compare the full costs, unit plus headstay, my Reef Rite, including shipment costs and installation
was the same as a brand new Pro Furl plus the new head stay and fittings.
And while you may not need such a robust piece of equipment
, this is one of those items that it is good to have a lot of confidence inthat it is going to work, and work well.
