Sparcraft inmast furling DDW

I hope I haven't asked this in the past.

I have a Sparcraft IMF. As I've mentioned in previous threads before I was terrified of it when I first bought the boat, all due to bar room horror stories.

Reality , 2 ocean crossing and many more nm's its performed faultlessly. I'm a fan.

My question is specifically to Sparcraft IMF owners , do you, can you furl ddw? I dont, I round up abit and furl ,it takes seconds. I don't furl ddw as there seems to be very large loads on the system and I worry I'll break something .

I ask because I know owners of other imast furling systems that do furl ddw, Amels, seldon rigs etc.

Interests in others experiences and opinions.
