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.

Review:
I installed the furler kit today and overall it was an easy install except the rear pad eye. I followed Hobie's instruction to the letter, but this kit is just shy of being a universal fit. I have a2009 Revo and the location for the rear pad eye for the bungee was just in front of the built in rod holder. I had to lay in the driveway with a 3/8 open end wrench and contort myself to reach the nuts for tightening. Another issue, which was already mentioned is one of the plastic balls used for unfurling was facing in the wrong direction. I will try to come back to the review pages once I get a resolution from Hobie. I will say even with the hicups I have mentioned the furler appears to be good quality and well engineered. It is going to make sailing even more fun with my Hobie Revolution.

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.

Finely Got out on the lake yesterday to use the furling for the first time. It worked great. Installation was easy, I did put a light coat of plumbers silicon on the end of the mask so it would turn easier. Something I has been thinking of building until Hobie came out with this item.

easy to install and seems to work fine in the garage, hope to give a true test when the ice melts off the lake!

Another quality product from Hobie. Simplifies furling the sail on the kayaks. A must needed accessory finally available. Do check the fairlead location before drilling to make sure your pedals do not hit the lines coming from the mast while pedaling. Great installation tips available on Hobie Kayak Sailing forum. There are adjustments to be made depending on model of kayak. Instruction pages were not in order so you have to flip the pages around.
