FLEXIBLE FURLER FEATURES
What makes a Flexible Furler different from the rest?
Simplicity. Often, the simplest product is the best
product. The CDI Flexible Furler has one-eight the number of parts of
competitive systems and is the easiest to install, operate and maintain.
Plus, the CDI Flexible Furler System is backed by an unequaled warranty.
A patented, one-piece, UV stabilized PVC luff extrusion.
This luff extrusion is as stiff in torsion as a metal system, and yet
can bend without kinking, unlike metal systems. There are no joints to
fail and it is designed to be winched.
A built-in halyard, eliminating troublesome halyard
swivels and halyard wrap, maximizing reliability whether offshore or close
Reliable Furling. Our durable one-piece urethane furling
drum and stainless steel drum cover keeps the furling line in place. You
can accidentally drop your anchor onto the Flexible Furler drum and expect
it to keep working!
Fail Safe Bearings. Because of the built-in halyard,
our rugged bearings see only a fraction of the load carried by other systems.
Smaller Flexible Furlers typically use a one-piece solid plastic bearing,
though some sailors prefer ball bearings as a convenience option (like
having power steering in a small car). The FF7.0 and 9.0 come with ball
bearings standard. CDI uses ½" Torlon balls which roll over
dirt easier and need less maintenance than the ¼" balls you
find in less rugged systems.
Easy Installation. Designed to be installed over your
existing stay, cutting in half the installation time.
Low Maintenance. We recommend that you rinse your bearing
with a hose every 5 years (a 5 minute procedure).That's it! And you don't
have to drop your sail to rinse the bearing. Shop CDI Flexible Furler
