Z-Furl headsail furling opinions?

Has anyone here used the Z-Spar genoa furling system? It has several attractive features (sturdy, double-groove foil isolated from the headstay, etc), a few lacking features (tack swivel for better reefing shape), and very nice price (roughly $900 for our 30' boat, and that's the next larger unit). But I'd love some personal assessments of its quality and performance. Has anyone ever run double headsails downwind on one?
