Using recycle will definitely cause a performance hit. It's unlikely
that you'll need to use it for 99% of your code. In cases where I use
it in a loop, I'll usually use a counter so I only call it every N
iterations. Sometimes a specific call or section of logic (e.g. where
a large series is allocated), can also be used as a trigger to keep
the recycle count down.
