VECTORETTE PCR.... blunt ends?

I was just wondering if anyone has experience working with blunt-ended
vectorette units versus sticky-ended vectorettes.  I am worried that the
blunt-end vectorette may ligate easier onto terminal digested fragments
and amplify non-specific fragments (of my Vectorette Library).  It would
seem that sticky-ended digests would prove to be more specific, though I
have no experience with blunt-ended vectorettes....

By the way, would anyone recommend Genosys' Vectorette kit?  I've been
constructing my own vectorette units from Riley (1990).

Any response would be helpful, Thanx in advance!
