. I can's say both work all the time with no problems the endless furler seems to be the easier one to use. But that may be because I only fly the screecher in less that twenty knots and normally less than fifteen knots.
In any case one thing I did with the endless furler was move the blocks a little to provide a straighter run for the line.
For the conventional furler I have noticed that there does seem to be a tendency for the line to build up around the drum and you have to watch that and at times unwind it.
If I was to switch out one I would go with an endless furler on both headsails.
