Basic diffeences between a cruising chute and a Geenaker ?

I agree with tsenator that asymmetrical spinnakers are MUCH easier to use in all aspects compared to a standard spinnaker with pole, etc. I can singlehand my asymm (although I only bought the sail this year and am still learning.) I doubt there are many singlehanders out there messing with a conventional spinnaker with a pole. The modern asymm with sock, etc. is a terrific sail for shorthanded boats. You can''t say that about a regular spinnaker with pole.
