I have not but it looks as promising as other products in one way or another.

Bottom line is gel coat repair and color that you want or get close.

Looks like as much of an OK product as a fellow could expect.

color matching is the hardest thing about gel coat repair. But also applying light coats a little at a time and allowing it to "flash" between coats. I saw a great youtube video about gel coat repair that helped me a lot.

Great point to remember for those following.

Also I have seen some shrinkage upon curing even in small areas. I make sure I get any small air pockets out (easy to capture in a small area) by using a tooth pick when I fill a spot.

Agreeing; color matching is one of the two most time consuming steps in the process (in particular on larger areas), thus the higher cost associated with this type of work. That is why I like the Rayplex product...it allows that flexibility for color matching as part of their process. Spectrum is one and done without order multiple kits with different shades for mix-match.
