In September 2018, the Tuff Luff profile forestay was replaced by a furling system. Since then as foresails we only had on board genoa 1, genoa 4 (jib) and gennaker. We found it most convenient for family sailing. The originally battened jib stands good, also without battens. The Tuff Luff profile forestay is still available in case those who are ambitious regatta sailors want to make the effort to rearrange. Unfortunately, the Genoa 3, which can be seen on some photos still(the yellow laminate sail), is cut too low for the Furlex and is therefore no longer mentioned in the equipment list. It would fit on the Tuff Luff profile though.
