Blackout Kick or Spinning Fire Blossom

Monk
Just hit 52, according to Noxxic Blackout kick should be used for excessive chi dump.

But they do almost the same damage, with Blackout kick being slightly stronger, but you can use SFB twice for everytime you can use Blackout kick, wouldn't it be better? is there a reason to use BK over SFB other than you have to aim it?
Blackout kick also provides a different buff for each spec. Shuffle for BM, autoattack heal for MW, etc
SFB is better for WW monks to use. Similar damage, but you get 2 for 1 vs Blackout.
Ah yes, I should have metnioned. I'm WW
BoK starts to outdamage SFB by the 70s, but still isn't stronger than two SFBs until at least 78 when you can pick up a cataclysm weapon.
SFB will stay superior to BoK until the upper levels

once you get to 90, SFB will become highly situational
SFB only scales with AP while BoK scales with weapon damage and AP. Once you hit 85 and pick up some MoP weapons you'll see a big difference.

Untill level 85. After 85, SFB is used to pull mobs, root people in pvp, or do damage in pvp when you are rooted. Thats it.
