Running Backstays

I recently had my Pearson 39 yawl rerigged by Chesapeake Rigging in Annapolis. They added adjustable running backstays to the mizzen. Before they were fixed length but removable with pelican hooks. The adjustable ones with 3:1 blocks, cam locks, and lots of line seem to be an unnecessary bit of rigging and I am considering going back to the original set up. Any thoughts?
