so WHEN would I use spot metering linked to AF point selection?

I use this to avoid exp locking then recomposing but am i using spot metering too much?

Do you get the exposures as you want them?
If so, continue using the method that works for you.

I would never use spot metering for dynamic/action shooting.

I might use spot metering to figure out the "best" exposure for a static scene with high DR. However, for that scenario you could also use LiveView.

Most of the time I use aperture priority with matrix/evaluative metering and EC, or preset my exposure in manual mode. It all depends on situation.
