Prompt Root: Nexus Root Toolkit v1.8.1

Hi everyone. Is it good to use Nexus Root Toolkit v1.8.1 (http://www.wugfresh.com/nrt/) to root Nexus 7 2013 with Android 4.4.2?
In old devices box:

Still using:
Nokia Lumia 720 - Windows Phone 8 with Amber
Google Nexus 7 Gen2 - stock Android 4.4.2
LG G2 - stock Android 4.4.2

It helped me get my feet wet and it works perfectly, but it's a good feeling at some point to learn to do it all manually. But out of all the toolkits, Wug's is probably the best.

You can find his XDA thread here.
Kenneth, what is the frequency? Set a fire for a man, and he will stay warm for a night. Set a man on fire, and he will stay warm for the rest of his life.

I can do it manually with no problem, I have a lot of Android devices and experience, but I just don't have time to learn new ways, so I'm hoping this toolkit will save my time.

Whats new about unlocking the bootloader and installing supersu ? I get the convenience of toolkits, but for an experienced Android power user rootng a Nexus device is probably faster manually than downloading the toolkit
My Devices:
Samsung SCH-R680 (CWM/Stock - /Rooted) Retired
Samsung SCH-R830 (CWM/Stock - /Rooted)

I just forgot it, to be honest. I'm not "creator", I'm "user", so I have to remember some steps. Anyway, toolkit worked great and all Nexus devices must have to be with unlocked bootloader. Now 95% of time was used to unlock it and backup my data. Rooting was only 5% of time.
