I agree with Bob that the ‘unwinding’ of the luff wire probably isn’t significant, but it is enough to apply a significant turning force on the forestay stand-off, to the point where the forestay fouls in the sail as we try to furl. This may be a result of cheeper furler, rather than the wire.
Having said all that, I don’t know which is the right way either!
