Roller furlers

Hi Guys, May I have your pro's, cons and opinions re drum furlers vs endless line furlers for a 40ft boat. Thanks.

Re: Roller furlers

Everyone uses single line Roller Furling these days as most enless line furlers suck do not work well.

Re: Roller furlers

I see drums on genoas and jibs and endless on kites.

Racing boats tend to have endless everywhere.

I used both and can't see any difference - 99% of what I have used worked OK.

Re: Roller furlers

Drums are for headsails, endless are for code sails.
