Not having made the investment in high grit water stones yet, stropping definitely makes a difference for me. I use some lapping film from tools for working wood (the sample pack has lasted me quite a while now) and then I strop on leather with the green stuff. Out of curiosity I took some extra leather I had on hand and tried stropping on the smooth side of bare leather. Maybe a tiny improvement over leather and green compound, but sans water stones stropping is a necessity for me.
