Well, I don't know any racer with a pole as big in proportion with its size as a mini-racer so Erick is right in pointing that it is specially useful on those boats.
Well, the are in a different situation, going upwind with the Spi. I was thinking on reaching courses with the Asym as often seen in Minis and more seldom on other boats (sometimes on Class40s, never(?) on IMOCAs)...
