Hacking & hyper Is it really bad to use running reins?!

Well I would like to hear everyones opinions on running reins?! Friendly debate please.
I am considering using running reins just while we are hacking out. Mainly cause it's winter here & very wet so the only riding I can really do is road riding, my horse does jiggs & dances around a bit.
I can get him to work round without them but once we get out on the road he is too distracted to wanna play ball. Yes schooling is a better resource than running reins but it's an idea.
I am experienced rider been riding since I was 5(now 24) & have worked as a groom/rider under some amazing bosses(sj, polo, dressage, hunting & racing) so I am knowledgable and know how to use running reins properly.
What do you guys think something that should be avoided at all costs or if the right hands is a good tool?

I'd be more inclined to use them simply for training, perhaps use a ring martingale for that little bit of help you need whilst out
