Brewed my first IPA with my new set-up (pump and plate chiller). The amount of hop splooge that made it throught the bazooka tube and through my pump/chiller was a bit concerning. I'm thinking of using this large conical strainer (SS) in a similar set-up as a hop spider. My question is how much will this effect my hop untilization? not at all, a little?

Very little to none.

I agree with David 42. Also the bazooka is designed for whole hops. Be mindful the smaller filter might result in a stuck transfer.
