The opposite is suggested in this discussion:

I would use them as doubles on sport, clipping alternatively, exactly the same way I would use them on a trad or ice route.

I think the best system for security on any route is a single skinny rope i.e 9.2mm and a half rope clipped alternatively. Use the single at the start of a pitch when there is little rope in the system and high impact force fall potential and then start clipping the half alternatively as potential fall factor decreases. covers all bases.

obviously i meant to type alternately !
