Default Rapi Kool users?

I was in a restaurant supply house this afternoon and saw this cold paddle thing.

Anyone have any experience with a "Rapi-cool" cold paddle

Here's a link to one place you can buy online.

If you don't like random clickage, just google "Rapi-cool".

Looks like a neat piece of equipment...

I had considered getting one when I started out brewing, but I got an immersion chiller instead, and an adapter to use on the sink if I was brewing in my kitchen.

Seriously, an IC is way more efficient so I don't see much use for this in brewing especially since we're cooling 5+ gallons of boiling wort and not a few quarts or a gallon of soup.

I could see the use of one if you missed your mash temp and went in to hot.
