If you are not racing, the extra sail area you can get with an extended roach with 1 or 2 full length battons is not important. For a 22 foot boat, I would just go with a sail with partial battons. It will be less expensive and you won't have the issue of the extra maintenance of the batton pockets with all full length ones.
