svsirius is on a distinguished road
The real key to loving them is making them collapsible so when raising the main you can pull them forward so battens etc hanging up is a non issue. Have sailed on boats without this set-up and not near as easy as ours. When dropping just pull them back out and away you go. It also means you don't have as many slots in the sailcover.
