TyeTec reef blocks vs. traditional blocks?

Any opinions or experience on the use of TyeTec reef blocks? Seems like a simple idea - but I would be interested in how the friction compares to a traditional clew block.

Input welcome!

I've used their luff boxes and leech tensioners which are good quality. I have mixed feelings about recommending them because sometimes you have to wait from them to get shipped from Europe and there are other good alternatives. What kind of boat are you using them on?
