Unlike the previous generation of free-flying sail furlers which often resulted in partial or uneven furling, with the patent pending Harken Reflex, sailors can confidently furl free-flying spinnakers and gennakers with speed and optimized control. The result? Sailors use downwind sails more often — even when sailing shorthanded. The compact drive unit is easier to handle than other designs. Pull the furling line and the drive unit reacts reflexively to rotate the torsion cable, immediately transferring torque to the head swivel without unwanted twist delaying the response. The head swivel reacts instantly, spinning the sail smoothly and completely from top to bottom for an even roll-up and super-tight wrap. The furled spinnaker lowers easily to the deck, ready for the next hoist. Complete even roll-up, tight wrap - Low-friction ball bearing tack swivel allows the upper part of the sail to furl first. Strong, lightweight - Large diameter hardcoat-anodized 6061-T6 aluminum drive sheave and Torlon® ball bearings reduce friction, simplify maintenance. Holds line securely - Flexible polycarbonate alloy cowling allows rope to be easily fed into drive sheave without tools; keeps rope captive. Offset holes in drive sheave grip the rope securely when furling. Stripper and feeder work together to prevent furling line from jamming. Easily change between furled spinnakers - Quick-release modular T-fittings allow single drive unit to handle multiple sails. Each sail has its own torsion cable. Head and tack swivels are permanently fitted to each sail. Rolled sail easily disconnects with the pull of one spring-loaded pin; new furled sail slides and locks into T-slot. Lightweight, low-profile head swivel - Integral thimble/terminal for torsion cable saves weight; no fork, eye, or pin connections. Compact design reduces weight aloft, maximizes luff length. Padded cover (not shown) prevents damage to spars. Choice of lower drive unit attachments to bow fitting or sprit - Snap shackle (included) for quick connection. D shackle for more permanent attachment. Loop soft-attach/2:1 purchase to control luff tension. Immediate, smooth, controlled furling - Reflex cable is more torsionally resistant to corkscrewing than the current breed of textile cable. Braided stainless steel wire filaments over braided polyester core transmit torque to head swivel through both tension and compression for faster furling (textile cable transmits through tension only). Smooth polymer cable jacket protects sails against abrasion. Lead blocks keep sidedecks clear - Spliced continuous lines can be installed without tools. Lines led outside of stanchions. Fit 25 mm (1") stanchions. Compatible with Code Zero Sails - The quick-release modular T-fitting allows the bottom unit to handle Code Zero as well as asymmetric sails. Select the fixed tack terminal option when the torsion cable is inside the luff. A 2:1 soft attach is recommended for increased purchase and luff tension.

Accepts 1/4in (6mm) Furling Lines Unit 2 for boats up to 14 m (45'); Max Sail Area 1800ft² (168m²).
