I have a Cape Horn on my pearson 33. I love it. I've sailed just over 3,000 miles with it in the last 5 years and it is really tough. By far the simplest and most robust design. I carefully looked at the others and felt they had flaws I could not live with. (too many moving parts, not sensitive enough, mixed metals, poor service, looking like oil derricks on my stern, too fragile, etc.) I also went to Montreal to visit his factory. Yves is a genius, and does very tough, quality work. All stainless and simpler to mount. I really like steering the boat from inside the cabin with it. Plus it was a good buy.
FWIW I recommend it.
