boom brakes

I know a lot of people use preventers (Sail safe anti jibe boom preventer or a purchase to an anchor point) etc. I am leaning towards boom brakes, looked at the Wichard gybe easy (or make my own with a figure 8 descender). I have researched the Dutchman and the Walder but am curious and trying to find out more about the Scott boomlock and the new Fleming Gybomatic. Anyone out there using one of the latter two, and does anyone have any videos of them in use while jibing?
