Top-Down Spinnaker Furler NS Furling Gear 1.2 Top-Down is designed to handle sails with a «soft» luff like asymmetrical spinnakers and gennakers, Code 2-6, reachers, large A-sails etc.

It is imperative to use an anti-torsion stay for the Top-Down furling system to work properly. When you pull an endless control line, the torque cable transfers the rotation to the upper swivel. This way your sail will be furling from the top to the tack, tightly rolling the main girth of a spinnaker. At the same time the top-down revolving ring holds the tack of the sail in place preventing its furling until the last moment.

Top-Down furling system makes much easier to hoist and lower your asymmetric spinnaker or tack single handed.

Top-Down furler is a universal set to use for sails with the “soft” or “straight” luffs. If you need to hoist different types of sails it is possible to use one NS Top-Down furler. The tack of Code Zero type sails should can be attached to the jaw of the drum and the tack of A-sails – to the revolving ring.

Gennaker furler NS1.2TD is an analogue to following furlers: G25TD, Selden GX7.5, Ronstan Series 80 Top Down, Facnor Fast FX+ 900, Profurl Spinex 0.9.

NS1.2TD furler set includes the drum with the revolving top-down ring and the upper swivel. Top-Down drum of this set includes the rotating ring which keeps the tack of the sail while you are furling it from top to bottom. We are providing a ready to use 8 mm continuous control line and anti-torsion soft stay kits separately. For your convenience we are preparing ready-to-use kits of furling equipment to reliably hoist asymmetric spinnaker or gennaker of any type. For each set there are optional accessories available to improve your furling experience.
