The Hobie Kayak Sail Furler Kit is going to make sailing a whole lot more simple. Instead of rolling up your sail by hand, this easy-to-install rigging kit can be added to any Mirage kayak sail kit. Kit comes complete with all the hardware you will need and installation is simple. See the Instructions on the Resources tab.
I had made a homemade furler to use on my revo 11 but was not pleased with how it worked. This furler is well worth the money if you plan on doing any sailing. If you install on a revo 11 you can't follow the instructions exactly. See the hobie site for more info... http://www.hobiecat.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=32&t=51318
Components and ease of use super. I cannot understand why, when one of the furler balls was discovered to be facing the wrong direction and on the wrong side of the knot, why Hobie didn't notify distributers of the flaw and fix that was mentioned on the forum. Some inconsistent QC and communication.
The furler works great. I'm continually amazed at the ingenuity of the "engineers" at Hobie. They are real innovators. The mirage propulsion system is pure genius. The furler kit is outstanding, and the weight penalty is only a few ounces.
The furler does the job. Easy to install. Mine came with a ball turned in the wrong direction. I have noticed others with the same complaint. It still works though.
