Hi Eric. I own SM 299. I have never had a jam on the main. I dont have battens. I find the system very forgiving. I just work the two switches to keep the sail off tight as it rolls
I have never done it but I suspect the biggest cause of jamming would be rolling very loose causing bunching. I find if I overload the motors the breakers pop long before any damage. This is my first in.mast furling. I was a lifetime racer so had a strong predudice against in mast sustems. Now as a cruiser (performance orientated) I would have nothing else. I would never add battens.
