The Easysnuffer Pro is the ultimate accessory for any downwind sail, and happily it comes as standard with every Parasailor and Parasail.
It has been designed and constructed to be as user-friendly as possible, providing smooth deployment and dowsing, even when handing several hundred square meters of fabric - accommodating even the large wing of a Parasailor with ease.
The Easysnuffer Pro also contains a number of useful features and design elements that not only make life easier for the crew, but help protect both your sail and your rigging.
We believe the Easysnuffer Pro is simply the finest snuffer on the market today
The Easysnuffer Pro has a very wide elliptically shaped snuffer mouth which is excellent for both deploying and snuffing your Parasailor. Unlike most snuffers (which use circular snuffer mouths), the shape of the Easysnuffer Pro makes it significantly easier to deploy or gather in the sail when you're deploying or dowsing. This not only allows a quicker and smoother operation, but also helps protect your sail from harm.
The Easysnuffer Pro snuffer mouth is constructed from a composite that is both incredibly light and strong. It is also extremely smooth to aid deployment / snuffing of your Parasailor.
The Easysnuffer Pro has been designed to be as simple to use as possible. To aid this, it has been comprehensively colour-coded red and green (port and starboard) so your Parasailor cannot be launched back-to-front!
Both sides of the sock, as well as snuffer mouth and part of the control line are all colour-coded to make it as clear as possible (see image below).
In addition, the clews and sail edges of the Parasailor are colour-coded for additional clarity.
The Easysnuffer Pro includes two snap hooks (one on each side), which are contained in small pockets in the snuffer mouth. These hold the clews of your Parasailor in place when it's being held in the sock, to prevent them becoming lost, tangled, or flying away when your Easysnuffer Pro is hoisted.
This feature allows you to attach your sheets and guys to the clews of your Parasailor before releasing it from the Easysnuffer Pro.
The Easysnuffer Pro contains an integrated control line, in order to raise it and launch or dowse your Parasailor.
This continuous line is made from 10 mm Ø (minimum) ergonomic polyester and includes a 2:1 purchase to aid raising and dowsing.
The quality of the line helps aid the speed and smoothness of deployment, particularly with light or novice crews and solo sailors, and its ergonomics make it comfortable to use in all conditions.
Typically, the part of any downwind sail which encounters the most wear is the head. And when you're out at sea the last thing you want to be doing is removing several hundred square meters of fabric onto your deck, in order to check that there is no wear on the head of your sail.
Good News! The Easysnuffer Pro contains an inspection hatch at the top of the sleeve, which allows quick and simple access to the head of your sail, allowing for quick and easy replacement of any worn parts - for example the shackle. This feature transforms the toil of a long afternoon, into just a few minutes work.
