No, seriously, there's nothing wrong with feeler bets, if the situation that is presented is ideal for a feeler bet; however, I don't think this situation--with 2 player checked in front, and 1 player left to act behind--is ideal for a feeler bet.
The purpose of the feeler bet is to see where you stand, and try to gauge the strenght of your opponents' hands. However, it only works when it is used in the right situation. In this situation, even when using the feeler bet, you won't really know where you stand if you get one or two callers, because of the board that came out on the flop.
