Top Down Asym furling

Hi Everyone,

I'm looking for some folks to comment who have real world experience with the new top down furlers for asym chutes. Our tack fitting's way out at the end of the sprit, and we're always somewhat skeptical about new gear. This system, if it works as advertised, however, will change the way we sail-no more messing with socks and wrestling the damn thing around. Very intriguing!

Anybody out there fitted one of these and used them offshore? Boat's 55', 1800 square feet is our biggest kite.

Thanks. TJ
