Who uses a Larkshead on their jib sheets?

Hi All,

I haven't yet really dug into the running rigging on the boat yet. But I have snagged those monster bowlin knots of the genoa sheets on the shrouds one too many times now and was looking for an alternative method of tieing the sheets to the jib. I saw a video from Capt John showing the Larkshead used on the jib. Anyone have any input and or experience with this?
