OK my question was not clear. I guess many sails will get extra wind range with an adjustable outhaul (though +/- 5 knts seem huge). One would expect the Reflex system to adjust automatically to wind variations, short and long wavelengths. Downwind/upwind is another story but the sail should never become backhanded, by design. Otherwise why is it superior to traditional cutaways?
