I'd say it's a tradeoff. You may have more trust of your own entry guard,
but you're losing the benefits of guard rotation and possibly making it
easier for de-anonymizing attacks to occur. From the man page: "We
recommend you do not use these — they are intended for testing and may
disappear in future versions. You get the best security that Tor can
provide when you leave the route selection to Tor; overriding the entry /
exit nodes can mess up your anonymity in ways we don't understand."
