    it's never a bad idea to use one. ever the most perfectly set-up derailleur can (and will) drop a chain every now and then.

    I don't know why anyone would not use a simple chain catcher with a carbon or lightweight aluminum frame. I can't remember the last time I dropped a chain inside, but again, why wouldn't you have a chain catcher? Some sense of pride... "I know how to adjust a FD, why would I need one..." ?
