Now you can enjoy the flexibility of setting
up your fitout exactly to suit yourself.
With automatic models, the ratchet mechanism
engages when load is applied, but switches off when it's released. This
lets the sheet run out smoothly and freely-great for rapid easing of the
sheet and for gybing asymmetric spinnakers.
Manual modes allow the ratchet mechanism to
be switched on or off as required. This is the preferred mainsheet
set-up for many top sailors.
