Is there any reason to use both a whirlfloc tablet and irish moss, or would this not yield any further clarifying?

Referring to a 5 gal all grain batch.

Whirlfloc Tablets: An enhanced blend of Irish Moss and purified carrageenan. Aids in the coagulation and settling of haze-producing proteins and beta glucans.

Using whirlfloc and irish moss together would pretty much be the same as just doubling up on irish moss. Too much of that stuff can lead to off tastes. I'd say use one or the other, not both.
