ok, I'll bite. How is this different than a Code 0 that is typically flown from a wire or spectra/dyneema luff? Because it has a slightly wider TWA use? I'm not seeing how this is new or exciting. It's a code 0 that doesn't point as well, and is made from nylon. So you can't point as high as a true code 0, which most people don't have, and it doesn't run as well as an asym kite.

Is it just handling the sail that's the selling point? Why not just buy a reaching headsail? I guess it's nice for cruising boats. I never thought an asym was that hard to handle.
