Advantages to using Spinex 

SAIL BEARING TECHNOLOGY: EFFICIENT, RELIABLE FURLING

Problem: Because asymmetric spinnaker cloth is both light and fragile, the anti-twist cable has a tendency to damage it. Also, the cable
spins faster than the sail during furling which means the latter sometimes jams.
Profurl solution: Sail Bearing Technology comprises high-density spheres that spin freely around the anti-twist cable in order to protect
the sail from the cable. Sail Bearing Technology allows you to:
• keep the sail away from the cable
• stop reverse furling, which causes the sail to jam
• reduce wear of the sailcloth
• make furling easier and faster because it has a greater diameter than the cable on its own 

A COMPLETE SYSTEM READY TO USE

• SPINEX comes with drum, swivel, cable, end fittings, tack swivel, etc.
• Except for the length of the cable, SPINEX is ready to fit and ready to use out of the box. 

MULTI-PURPOSE and adaptable

• Remove the tack swivel and turn your SPINEX into a NEX ready to use with gennakers and code zeros.
• Profurl’s SPIN KIT fits on NEX furlers. 

OTHER ADVANTAGES:

• Compatible with NEX technology, such as I-Connect, Safe System, etc.
• Improved safety when worked from the cockpit or short-handed.
• Requires little storage space.
• System compatible with all types of asymmetric spinnakers.
