Shock Absorbing Lanyards

Is there a reason that you do not recommend using a shock absorbing lanyard in your solution with two ascenders on two ropes? I see that you recommend use of a nylon quickdraw. Please advise as when I climb professionally I use an ASAP with a shock absorbing lanyard albeit on a static rope and wanted to know your opinion on the matter?
