Default Power Jibe: how to flip the sail


I would consider myself an experienced windsurfer and I am quite happy with my jibes. Problem is: when flipping the sail (small sails as well as big sails like an 8.5) I still do the "boom to mast to boom" technic. Well, I often read (and have been told) that the "boom to boom" technic was much better, faster and efficienter. Fact is, that sometimes I have difficulties to grap the mast which results in a bad jibe. Question is wether I really should try to change the way I flip the sail or if I should just do as I did for so many years.
Will I gain much from a change (which will take an old man like me some time, I'm afraid)?

All comments appreciated.
