Running backstay on my PSC 34

For those of you who sail psc 34 & 37 cutter rigged, do you use your running backstay A) always, B) for long reaches, C) only when rigging is strained, D) rarely or E) never.

Sorry for the multiple choice but I'm not sure what's best for our boats. It seems pretty impractical for my sailing around Maine's islands. Should I be using at at every opportunity?

I welcome any thoughts, observations or advice.
