Re: Top down asymmetrical spinnaker furler.

I would buy any from the big names. Facnor, Karver, Selden, Profurl, Harken, etc.

Go to youtube watch the videos. You become competent top down furler in 15 minutes or so.

BTW Purpose built sails work best.

Best thing since sliced bread when it comes to shorthanded handling any kite bigger than say 600 ft sq.

PS There are models that can be shared with C0 style sails - you just add the furling cable and a different tack swivel and you have a 2 in 1 system for way less than twice the price.

Thanks, I have Facnor for my job/Genoa.
Looking Facnor, Kaver and Selden, saw them on videos, quite impress.
I don't have C0 yet but Will look in C0 compatible one, too.
Thanks,
