Swift reflexes: introducing the Harken Reflex Furling System with one drive unit for all free-flying headsails.

With the new Harken Reflex Furling System, sailors can now confidently furl free-flying spinnakers and gennakers with speed and control. Pull the furling line and the drive unit reacts reflexively to rotate the Harken Reflex torsion cable, transferring torque to turn the head swivel immediately for a fast, smooth roll-up and super-tight furl.

"If 'top down' furling was as easy as traditional headsail furling, you'd see them on more boats. It's a real design challenge," said Peter Harken, Chairman of the Board. "For a free-flying sail to furl evenly and completely when you pull the furling line on deck, the head swivel at the top of the rig needs to start turning now! Everything in the Harken Reflex system is designed to achieve now."

The patent-pending Reflex Furling System's quick-release modular T-fitting allows a single drive unit to handle multiple sails. Bottom attachment options allow soft loop/2:1 tack line, snap shackle, or D-shackle attachment to the bow or sprit.

The Reflex Furler is also available in a code zero kit with a fixed tack that is easily interchangeable with the swivel tack for your asymmetric sails.
