Three decades after Seldén launched its much-celebrated Furlex line, the Swedish rig and deck hardware manufacturer has introduced a fourth generation of its venerable roller-furlers. In keeping with the standards set by previous generations of Furlex furlers, the all-new Furlex 304S furlers have stainless steel ball bearings, a swiveling tack attachment to maintain the shape of a reefed sail, and a detachable drum that allows you to convert the furler into a racing headfoil. In addition, the 304S line has also been made lighter through judicious use of composites, and features a shorter halyard swivel and more compact furler unit to provide for greater luff lengths. From $4,600.
