Anyone using ACF Custom Database Tables plugin?

I’m starting to map out a new project (actually a refresh of an existing site). I’ll be leveraging Sage 9 and Trellis, along with ACF for custom fields. It will include a significant number (10+) of custom post types, not to mention taxonomies, and as well as WooCommerce.

I’ve been looking at ACF Custom Database Tables as a way to mitigate some of the pain that comes from having lots of different custom post type data stuffed into wp_posts and wp_postmeta.

It seems a pretty legit solution but I’m also sensitive to the fact departing from the default WordPress schema has risks.

Anyone here used ACF Custom Database Tables and have you found it to be worthwhile?

I would be also interested in hearing some opinions.
