I think the real advantage of using soft shackles for jib sheets is that there is no knot to hang up on the rigging. It make a huge difference in tacking with overlapping genoas.

I have a dozen articles on soft shackles, several unique varaties on L-36.com. The introductory articles is Soft Shackles
