A lot of top restoration shops use it and my bodywork is fine. We're talking to take care of stuff your hand can't feel, and hand feel is for dealing with mudwork. Straightening beyond that comes from primer. My work is as straight as anyones and you can get there quicker with featherfill. By the time the straightening is done, if you know what you're doing, most of the primer is on the floor and it's not excessively thick. Topcoating it with a 2k gives it a pliable surface for rock chips. So in a sense you're right but you'll get that better end result much quicker implementing a poly primer in your early primer apps.
