I prefer the quickstop method as well. But one conern i have is that when you turn downwind, it is easy to forget the exact wind direction in the excitement and accidentally jibe. With most of the methods, the cool head on the boat is the most important piece of equipment, and the accidental jibe can give that cool head a nasty knock.
