Surf Fishing Rig- Earl Brinn worth it

Ok so Michigan boy here. I have been spending a couple of weeks each year surf fishing down by you guys since I was a little kid (30 years old now). So I wouldn't say I'm a beginner by any means.  Last couple years I have been using the Earl Brinn rig for surf fishing Usually running 50 lb main, and 17 lb dropper. My question is having two baits on each rig worth it? I feel like I used to catch just as many fish just running a pyramid sinker on a clip followed by about 8 inches of line to a circle hook.
