Headsail reefpoints

I have a reef point in my jib and I don''t see any change in pointing ability. In fact when the wind is up to the point that I would reef the jib (two reefs in the main), I feel the boat sails better in all respects. The down side for me is unless I anticipate the need to reef the jib early, the conditions on the fore deck are quite nasty.
