By all means, buy one and learn how to use it properly...
With the right arrangment you can sail pretty well downwind....
Make sure you install a line on what is the Assy clew, so you can raise it and lower it to provide more or less depth on the lower part of the spinnaker.
Many people just install one and attach the clew to the bow, if you attach it to a line that you cleat in the cockpit it becomes much more versatile.
