When I was younger setting up to use the symmetrical was fun. 30 years of racing I could do it in my sleep. As time passes it becomes more of a chore and less fun so we switched to a sock. A lot more control and no pole but still had to get the chute out and set it up if we wanted to use it and I had to go forward underway which stressed my wife out. End result we didn't use the chute often.
Along came Selden. Put the chute on a GX furling system. Added a bow sprit. Boom!
We hoist the chute before we get underway. Want to use it. Roll up the jib, release the furling line for the chute and yank on the sheet. Done w/ the chute roll it up. Take it down at the end of the day.
No stress.
Will never go back.
