I'd be willing to play with the idea a bit. My initial thoughts are that this looks like a fiddly time consumer.

If one can get it together in advance it works kinda. But in the more realistic world of a trad anchor with unequal legs all the knots and playing looks from a glance to be slower than I would choose.

No more fiddly or time consuming than an equalette IF you don't have to adjust the location of the knots (in almost all cases, you shouldn't). As with the standard equalette, there are ways to shorten an arm as necessary to prevent the need for adjusting the knots.

This thing is definitely meant to be tied and left tied unless you need the cord to bail off of or something. I treat the equalette the same way when I use it (which isn't very often). I still prefer the standard tied cordelette for most anchors.
