Ronstan Orbit Winches with QuickTrim

New in the winch market is Ronstan’s range of aluminum self-tailing Orbit Winches, all featuring the innovative QuickTrim feature. Four years in the making, QuickTrim allows the line to be eased without removing the handle or the line from the self-tailer. Racing sailors can react and respond instantly to minor changes in wind direction or steering, providing an advantage when frequent sail trim adjustments are required. It’s also a nice convenience for cruising sailors. With one hand on the tail of the sheet, rotating the top cover of the winch counter-clockwise against spring pressure allows the self-tailer to turn beneath it like a sheave as the rope is eased out, with smooth grip and control assured by the drum surface and Power Ribs. When the top cover springs back, the self-tailer locks again and grips the line to resume normal use. The Orbit range includes three sizes: 20, 30, and 40 for boats up to 40 feet.
