Some of the new FP cats we have gotten have low friction rings on the clew for reefing. It doesn't work as well as the simple blocks FP used prior. The boats that have had the rings replaced with blocks are much easier to raise. The cats have a line run just to the clew. Needless to say, for that application on large square top fully battened cat sails, I am not a fan. I could see their use on smaller boats or race boats.
