we first used ours this summer, and although we are still greenhorns, were able to use it to great advantage when running. i think it is a fantastic sail, and easy to raise and lower with a snuffer (once you figger out where to properly lay all your lines).
we had a wrap around our forestay while limping in with a prop wrap, but that might just be to due inattention caused by said prop wrap. that was a bugger to get untangled.
still, with everything i have ever heard or read about symmetricals i would rather go with this sail (not that i have a choice; i have a pole but no sym. spinnaker for fainleog)
