Kadee Couplers vs. Aristocraft

If I don't care that much about remote switching (and I don't), is there any good reason why I can't stay with Aristocraft couplers on my locomotive and cars? I really like to just watch the train go around and around. Will the gods of G scale visit me with a plague of mutant moles for taking the esay way out?

I use Accucraft couplers and have no trouble at all. I think they look better than Kadees. When I was in HO I used Kadees exclusively. When I switched to 1:20.3 I bought some AMS rolling stock and liked the Accucraft couplers looks. I tried them out and they were operationally good, so I never converted to Kadee. I bought Accucraft couplers for my Bachmann locos as well and almost never lose a string of cars. If I do, it's usually due to track issues.
