U bolt yokes

I may be talking blasphemy but I am leaning toward using u-bolt type yokes on the front prop shaft.

Reason 1., easier to replace a faulty u joint with u bolt yoke/flange
Reason 2., I sent the only spare yokes I own to my BIL for his daughter's disco. So I have only a shaft and its spiders.
Reason 3. I have a set of u joint yoke flanges from the old 109 mess.

Are the u-bolt shafts weaker than the non-bolt type?
