Don't have a furler (yet), so won't try to speak to that. For your jib sheets if you like the larger line because it's easy to handle, than stick with it. I have HUGE job sheets on my new boat as well and while I find them easy to hang on to I can only get 3 wraps around the winch, and with our monster headsail in high winds I find that isn't enough. I'll be downsizing the sheets in order to be able to get another wrap on the winch.
Whatever you do, make sure you don't change the size too much if you have self tailing winches. You don't want to find that your new line won't work with the ST winches.
I have a sauna on my boat, therefore I win.
