I still use hank on headsails, but I have a downhaul also.
Could you talk a bit about how you have rigged your downhaul and your experiences using it? I also have hank-on jibs and have rigged a downhaul once, but there was a lot of friction and the only line I had on hand that was long enough was quite stretchy.
