Refined design.

Ronstan's series of Continuous Line Furlers put great performance and reliability within reach of cruising and racing sailors alike. The big new 200mm and 280mm furlers feature a fast pin to facilitate easy changeover of sails sharing a common furler set.

Top-down furling provides a new level of simplicity, safety and speed for handling of soft luff sails such as asymmetric spinnakers and gennakers. Cruisers can now store, deploy and retrieve these sails as simply as they would a furling headsail from the safety and convenience of the cockpit. Racers too can benefit from the characteristics of top-down to allow superfast retrieval of Code Zeros by the pre-winding the torsion rope and firing the sheet when ready. Ronstan furlers are available with top-down adapters or in dedicated top-down models with practical accessories such as top swivel lashing pins to provide the perfect solution.

Furlers and top swivels feature a factory sealed, maintenance free bearing. Roller bearing sets run on hardened races for smooth high load performance. The continuous furling line is easily fitted and removed from the furler, so it can be left on deck when the sail and furler are stowed below.

Furlers and top swivels have retained clevis pins and top swivels have a snag-free low profile shackle pin head. Attachment options include quick release pins, high resistance shackles, snap shackles, fairleads and torsion rope thimbles. The furling line guide can be adjusted to suit either 0 or 90 degree attachment as required to match the take-off alignment and deck layout.

Another star of Ronstan's new product line, developed over the last nine months, is the Ropeglide fairlead. They can be positioned wherever they are needed to deliver your lines cleanly to a cleat or winch. The elliptical holes tolerate alignment variations, simplifying line threading, while the smooth and lightweight design looks good on any boat. The range includes single, double and triple hole versions.

RRP AU$2,915 for Series 200 standard furler

RRP AU$62--$167 for Ropeglide fairlead range
