My lazyjacks are simply 1/4" nylon braided lines with thimbled eyes on end - one line goes up the mast and back down, another from forward part of the boom up through the eye and down again and yet another from middle of the boom to the eye on second line and down to the back end of the boom.

They work ok, no worse than any other lazyjack system. However, with a fairly heavy and stiff mainsail they don't flake it nicely and only hold it somewhat. Something like "macpac" would probably work better, but that is for another lifetime.
