Default downhaul specific

When downhauling, should you always leave the leech loose? even if you are underpowered? Some people say downhaul it less or let downhaul off when more underpowered and just pull the crap out of it when overpowered. I understand the later, but won't the letting of the downhaul make the sail way more twitchy and a higher draft etc?

Also, outhaul, should you have to really pull to make it go the recommended boom setting? Some of my sails just rig with little outhaul at all, while others take quite a bit of pulling. Should you be able to pull the clew with your hand (ie no pullies or string) to the end of the clew?

tks guys,
