Tickle sticks most certainly do less damage to the coral, however I was told that the primary reason they use then in Florida was due to the large number of eels that usually cohabitate with lobsters.
It always gets my adrenaline running when I peer inside a hole and a moray sticks his head out.
I was also told (and I found that it holds true here on the west coast as well) that if the lobster has only one antennae forward and the other is pointed back in the hole, it is because there is an eel in the hole and the lobster is using the antennae to keep track of where it is. So if you only see one antennae, think twice about reaching in after that bug!
