Stus-List Baby stay vs Cunningham?

Hi Josh- I have a similar rig, but the reefing hook is attached directly to the luff cringle.  I considered adding another 2:1 but I want to clarify how your pennant is rigged.  It looks like it is attached to the tack pin, then up to the cringle and then down to a spliced loop for the reefing hook?  Spliced loop or a metal thimble?   The reason I did not do that was I was not sure how I would deal with reefing. If I reef the main, I just put the hook in the next cringle.  What do you do?  Dave
