Unlike the previous generation of free-flying sail furlers which often resulted in partial or uneven furling, with the patent pending Harken Reflex, sailors can confidently furl free-flying spinnakers and gennakers with speed and optimized control. The result? Sailors use downwind sails more often - even when sailing shorthanded.
The compact drive unit is easier to handle than other designs. Pull the furling line and the drive unit reacts reflexively to rotate the torsion cable, immediately transferring torque to the head swivel without unwanted twist delaying the response. The head swivel reacts instantly, spinning the sail smoothly and completely from top to bottom for an even roll-up and super-tight wrap. The furled spinnaker lowers easily to the deck, ready for the next hoist.
The Harken Reflex furling comes in two sizes: Unit 1 for boats to 11 m (36'); Unit 2 for boats up to 14 m (45').
