many bars use exactly what you see on your bar, it works well,
that is-
until its changed without thought as to what might happen if any changes are made to the original spec, ie new line that's thinner or thicker, using a brummel splice above the splitter instead of a standard sewn splice, as a brummel splice can jam preventing flag out, the trust bar has this problem for example, along with many others, messing around and changing any element around the Y splitter point is better left to someone who knows all the risks and has the experience, tools, and solutions at hand to ensure you stay safe.
