I would opt for a removable inner forestay (in fact that is how my boat is rigged). Just remember that when you want to change down from the 150% it is because it it blowing too hard. And to get the sail off the roller furling, you have to completely expose it. The thought of wrestling with a 150 in 25 (or more) knots of wind is what made my decision.
