The FX+ furler, fitted with the Fast thimble, allows to furl in the asymmetric Spinnakers from the cockpit by pulling the bottom furling line. The anti-twist rope rotates up to the top and then transmits the rotation from the head to the tack of sail. And it is possible to use your existing asymmetric Spinnaker.
