9/10 rig vs 7/8 rig

Hi all, I would like to know which one of these rigs is more recent 7/8 or 9/10. (most modern) I was told that the 9/10 works best since you can carry a bigger jib. Any comments? I am talking two swept back spreader mast in both cases.

Re: 9/10 rig vs 7/8 rig

In general, over recent years, fractional rigs have been tending back towards the masthead, so in that respect the 9/10 fractional is probably more recent than the 7/8.
I don't believe that you can make any hard and fast rule about whether one is inherently better than the other.
