You use them with the staysail, you need to set the one on the luvside. I bring it down to a bock and from there on the small winch to give a counter force on the mast where the top of staysail is attached.

I have owned an Amel 54 for only a few months. As most 54s, the boat is rigged with genoa and staysail, and yes I have the reinforced mast with a little prebend, and followed the advice on having heavier lower stays than the original. And I have the dyneema lines ready to be used as running backstays ... but no tackle (yet) at the back end of the running backstays.
