Cruising Spinnakers

Would appreciate any and all comments on the merits of the "Cruising" Spinnaker particularly in regard to downwind or off wind sailing conditions. I have a Coronado 25 and while it really comes into it''s own on a fairly close reach, I can''t get much out of her in downwind conditions and I believe this generally applies in certain degrees to all sailboats. Will this sail improve performance on this point of sail?
And any hints or suggestions in setting and handling it will be much appreciated.
