I run my tailwheel cables snug with no slack.  I, too, like more precise 
response when taxiing

I've always been taught to scan the traffic area before pulling out onto the 
active when I'm not on a controlled field, and kicking it into free swivel to 
give it a spin is the way to do that.  There are other times, such as when 
maneuvering to a parking space or to the fuel pump, that kicking it into free 
swivel is useful.  Like I say, I've gotten used to it.

Oh, absolutely!  It's a rugged unit.
