Foot cups for fishing raft?

For the angler in the front of the raft are foot cups useful/good idea or not when standing/drifting to fish?

Foot cups would do nothing but snag the line if you're stripping onto the floor. As long as you have a lean bar, the person fishing up front should have more than enough stability, and they can put their feet anywhere that feels comfortable.

I have foot cups in the front of my boat. They don't help at all for fishing, if you are standing (sans thigh/lean bar) we typically lean our shins against the tubes (or stand on a deck that is also used as a seat)

I'll forget about that idea. Thanks.
