They are usually used in addition to regular headsail. When furled they can also be lowered and put away if you want.

Yes they can be reefed easily by cleating off the "end" of the loop at the cockpit at the point on the line you want it to stop unfurling.

Part of the installation should be a dedicated cleat.

I have been reefing my Hood continuous line furler for 20 years and have never had a problem with it.

Re: Continuous Line Furler - can it be reefed?

Have been using my Cruising Design continuous line furler since boat new 30 years ago.
Knowing this is a low end unit, for years I asked my rigger "think its time to replace"
he always checked out and respond "no need".
Used to worry about possibly unfurling but over years came to trust unit after holding
reef numerous times in heavy winds up to 50 knots.
Loop always cleated at cockpit.
