I know that BIT (http://www.bit.nl, unfortunately no english edition of 
that site) uses F5 BIG-IP already for a couple of years in production 
IPv6 and from what I know they are quite happy with it too.

Quick google(F5 BIG-IP):

IPv6 Support

Includes support for object definition, object probing, AAAA, A6, DNAME, 
SNMP, F5 iControl API, and statistics. Allows BIG-IP to support IPv4 and 
IPv6 addresses (self IPs, virtual servers, proxies, nodes, and SNATs).
