110 vs. 135 Headsails

I'm curious as to how many people carry both a 110 and 135 headsail. I carry a 135 as my primary and a 160 for light air days. We sailed yesterday and the wind was pretty strong at times (16 knots) causing me to reef/furl my 135 and I was wondering just how much performance I was missing out on by having to reef. Is the difference significant enough to purchase a 110 or should I just continue to reef the 135 when necessary? I sail a San Juan 28 and I sail on the Chesapeake. Thanks.

Horace
