PROFURL Spinex Top Down Spinnaker Furlers

Problem: Because asymmetric spinnaker cloth is both light and fragile, the anti-twist cable has a tendency to damage it. Also, the cable spins faster than the sail during furling which means your sail sometimes jams.
Solution: Sail Bearing Technology using high-density spheres that spin freely around the anti-twist cable to protect the sail from the cable.

Sail Bearing Technology allows you to:

  • keep the sail away from the cable
  • stop reverse furling, which causes the sail to jam
  • reduce wear of the sailcloth
  • make furling easier and faster because SPINEX has a greater diameter than the cable on its own

A complete system, ready to use:

  • SPINEX comes with drum, swivel, cable, end fittings, tack swivel, etc.
  • Except for the length of the cable, SPINEX is ready to fit and ready to use out of the box.Easily installed by the boat owner in minutes.

Multi-purpose and adaptable:

  • Remove the tack swivel and turn your SPINEX into a NEX Furler ready to use with gennakers and code zeros
  • Profurl’s SPIN KIT fits on NEX furlers. Use Profurl’s SPIN KIT to turn NEX furlers into asymmetric spinnaker furlers. SPIN KIT includes anti-twist cable, spheres, upper and lower end fittings.

Other advantages:

  • Compatible with NEX technology, such as I-Connect, Safe System, etc.
  • Improved safety when worked from the cockpit or short-handed
  • Requires little storage space
  • System compatible with all types of asymmetric spinnakers; Winner of SAIL Magazine’s 2013 Pittman Innovation Award
