Best part is that being able to see what the pressure is opens up more room for experimenting with it.
I can do a straight pull consistently enough without it, or even some variation, but if I want to mess around with something like "Preinfuse at 3 bar for 15 seconds, then peak at 12bar dropping off quickly to 9bar, continue until halfway through the shot and ramp down to 6bar for the remainder", it's a great help. Can also switch between straight 9, straight 8, straight 6, etc without having to be so familiar to know what each feels like by memory.
My "normal" is preinfusion with the resting weight of one arm and then 8bar pull. But I experiment somewhat often.
