The Profurl Spinex 5.0 Top-Down Asymmetric Spinnaker Furler addresses the problem of damage to the sail by using high-density spheres that spin freely around the anti-twist cable in order to protect sail from the cable.
- The Profurl Spinex 5.0 Top-Down Asymmetric Spinnaker Furler is a problem solver...
- Problem: Because asymmetric spinnaker cloth is both light and fragile, it is prone to damage by the anti-twist cable. Also, the anti-twist cable spins faster than the sail during furling which can jam your sail
- Solution: Profurl Sail Bearing Technology uses high-density spheres that spin freely around the anti-twist cable in order to protect sail from the cable
- Profurl Sail Bearing Technology allows you to:
- Keep sail away from anti-twist cable
- Stop reverse furling (which causes sail to jam)
- Reduce wear of sailcloth
- Make furling easier and faster because Spinex has greater diameter than the cable by itself
- Spinex furling system includes spool, swivel, anti-twist torque line with spheres, end fittings, tack swivel, furling line, etc.
- Except for anti-twist line length, Spinex is ready to install and use right out of the box
- Tack swivel fitted with Torlon bearings
- Compatible with NEX technology such as I-Connect and Safe System
