Anyone with experience with the Minolta Flash Meter's 5 or 10 degree viewfinders for reflective flash readings?

I have the 5-degree finder and the Flashmeter III, and I've tried it for reflective flash readings, and it does what it's supposed to do, but I find it's easier to use incident readings in studio settings, but then again, if the situation was something that I wasn't sure about, I could always proof on 8x10" Polaroid. I guess I can still do lighting checks with Fuji instant, but in 4x5"--another thing to worry about.

I usually use the 5-degree finder for ambient readings, landscapes and such.
