Roller mainsail furling

Hi All
Been several years since I have posted but I have been monitoring.
I met an owner of a Down Easter 40 the other day, had a good Gab fest.
The boat had a roller furling main that was essentially a jib furler hung on the back of the master. A neat instalation and we'll done. He recently purchased the boat and had no experience with how it sailed.
So my question is has any one else experience with this system good or bad?
