If you are racing or into high performance, maybe you don't want it.
If you are sailing far off shore, maybe you don't want it.

If you are near coastal and you prefer the convienience, maybe you do want it.
If you are getting older and hoisting a sail is getting difficult, maybe you do want it.

The jamming issue is way overblown. The only people who report jamming are people who don't know how to use it or refuse to learn how to use it.

Would Hunter, Catalina, Beneteau, Jenneau; all make them STANDARD if they were such a bad piece of equipment?
