Has anyone used a camber spar sail?

Wondered what the pro's and con's are. We got one with our boat, a 27-foot Catalina. But we haven't tried sailing with it yet.
Thanks for any input!

If I remember the article correctly, the wife requested the tires her husband asked for, but the shop talked her into buying something else that was not as good. So where's the fault? On both sides...
