The Plastimo Jib reefing system is the results of over 4 years experience in this field.
A great advantage of this system is that Plastimo reefing systems can be easily installed without unstepping the mast.
Easily operated underway and virtually no maintenance, made from non-corrosive high precision injection plastics and stainless steel components. All the Plastimo Jib reefing models are 'T' series for twin groove spars which allows the setting of twin headsails and easy headsail changes. All models are turnbuckle mounting which allows more accurate rigging adjustment with the reefer in place - and allows the use of your existing turnbuckle on the forestay. They still include the chain plates end - but have an additional funnel engineered into the spar to run the turnbuckle through.
Selecting a model:
Whilst boat length is important you must also consider the forestay size and headsail area size to determine which model suits.
