Yachting Monthly - - GROUP TEST -

Harken’s pop­u­lar Re­flex furl­ing sys­tem is now avail­able for larger boats. Rated at 4.5t (9,920lbs), it can be used with an asym­met­ric spin­naker for mono­hulls from 13m-17.7m (44ft-58ft) or with Code Zero on yachts from 12m-16.5m (39ft-54ft).

As with its smaller units, the Re­flex 3 fea­tures a in­ter­change­able T-shaped fit­ting, so you only need pur­chase one furler to use on a num­ber of sails. Each sail will re­quire its own Dyneema-cored, stain­less-steel-sheathed tor­sion rope and swivels that are per­ma­nently at­tached, but the sail re­mains flex­i­ble enough to be stowed with ease. www.harken.co.uk
