Roller Furling

I'm looking to put roller furling on my 1985 23 Precision, any input on systems you have had luck with?

Thanks,

I have a Schaefer Snapfurl on my P23. Been very happy with it. Also happy to have furling. At 69 I'm glad not to be hanking on the jib, and appreciate the ease of shortening sail when the need arises.

Two keys: make sure the leads are placed correctly, keep slight tension on lines during both furling and unfurling. Both keep the line from fouling.
