IMHO, it is more important to get the low stretch stuff for halyards, not so much for the sheets.
My reasoning is that you're constantly adjusting the sheets, so if they stretch a bit, you won't really notice, since you're constantly adjusting them. The halyards are generally fixed for much longer durations, and much harder to adjust, so any reduction of stretch in the halyards is going to be a much bigger and noticeable improvement IMHO.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
