|donalrossiter Tue 31 Jul 2012 17:59:10|| Hi, can anyone offer any information on any roller reefing systems they may have fitted to their mantas.|
I currently have a small jib which connects to the forestay with hanks. I want to invest in a genoa and before buying the sail i am considering fitting roller reefing to my boat

Be aware that for roller reefing to work reliably you need to set the standing rigging really tight.
Hope this helps

It works very well.
But dont´t use any forse when You roll,if it´s difficult to roll there is something else wrong somewhere.
It´s very easy to make Yourself,we had to order an extra spare ,otherwise it was to short.
