So that's what that is called. I only have a single hank on headsail thus far so changing sails is not an issue. I've never had mine get loose or hang up while tacking. Considering the size of my boat, I might opt for dedicated sheets for each sail. Now on a larger boat, the sails would change, not the sheets so it wouldn't work. I also agree on no metal for sheets in headsails, good way to go off the side unconscious in a blow.
