I prefer the simplicity of adding or subtracting a loop and I have a 4:1 to add tension.
It works a treat and in light breeze, I sometimes have to push the boom across - thats OK, better than the unintensional gybe in heavy conditions.
I do believe you would be very happy with whatever system you choose.
