Yes, but thatŽs exactly my point... no one has ever told "WHY"!
All of you certainly heard of Amyr Klink, and since he changed his rig to "Aero", he never changed back, no matter what (and boy...he faces some really nasty conditions) and even on the new -and bigger- boat, he chose it over the "traditional" ones. And heŽs not alone on this!
So, bottom line, are there real REASONS why one should NOT go for it? Because for a "ignorant" guy such as myself on this matter, it all smells like love/hate arguments, and not really the pros/cons of it...
