Using a combination of smooth-rolling Torlon® bearings and a round headstay extrusion centered on the headstay, Schaefer has reduced the effort necessary to roll up a genoa relative to competitive furlers. Features include:
A complete system consists of a furler drum and tube package and a matching toggle and link, either standard or long (sold separately). Use Norseman or Sta-Lok fittings for easy installation over your existing standard wire headstay and turnbuckle. Systems without mechanical fittings are designed for rod or pre-swaged wire headstays; we recommend assembly by a professional rigger.
