Yup, same here. Was always much more of a poke-check guy than going for hits. Figured it was far safer than taking myself out of position with a missed hit, and if you know how to time it/position yourself, you should have very very little chance at getting called for a trip. Now I actually resist using the poke-check because its too ridiculous. And I hate having to try to hold back.
