Behind mast roller reefing

I have a behind the mast mainsail furler and like it, but cannot imagine it on a wooden mast. I concur that many people who have lazy jacks seem to like them, though some have ripped them off also. Their is a product that furls a mainsail by having heavy nylon (fishline) between the topping lift and the boom, and the main seems to flake itself by sliding down these lines. I believe it is called the Dutchman, but I may be wrong on the name. Saw one at a boatshow once, and it seemed OK, but who knows in a blow?
