Is a jiffy system, works just fine. Didn't need any mods either. I did add a block to the outhaul on the foot of the main sheet and a clamcleat instead of the standard horn cleat, much handier. In heavier wind I always reduce the jib ( I have three) before reefing, Legacy is better balanced using smaller jibs. Still too much power ok then reef the main. Love my Legacy "Loki"
