Spinnaker Sleeve vs Chutescoop

Don''t know if this topic will create a religious war or not. I''m looking to buy either the Spinnaker Sleeve or the Chutescoop. I was wondering if folks out there had personal reviews of each. I know only the Spinnaker Sleeve is offered on Sailnet but I''d like to understand impartial pros/cons.

Thanks, J

Spinnaker Sleeve vs Chutescoop

Practical Sailor did a reveiw a while back. They like both but there were a few features (like the fiberglass bell opening) of the ATN spinnaker sleeve that made it a little smoother im operation and easier to use.

I must say I have purcahse 2 ATN spinnaker sleeve''s for 2 boats (27 and 36 foot) and I''ve liked it very much and it has enabled me to do single handed Asym Spinnaker raising and dousing. The other one is probably just fine, but for a few extra dollars you get a few nice details which might make a difference as the size of the "chute" and boats get larger.
