The reason I recommend against the strips is that I don't find them to be accurate. I wouldn't want to raise mash pH by 0.2 or more in error.
Bru'n, if followed correctly with accurate water inputs, always gets me within +/-0.1 of my target mash pH. The issue I think is operator error. If you're trusting a water report that might be outdated, or if you mis-measure a water volume or mineral addition, it's pretty easy to mess up your mash. There have been a few times where I missed something and my results were worse than +/-0.1 and required further futzing to get in the proper range.
I think precision pH strips much better than nothing, and are accurate enough for a "go/no go" evaluation of the general mash range, but not nearly accurate to target a specific mash pH.
