MBR magazine has an occasional little section titled 'Stinking shards of joy'. I like it because it is a review of well-used and often now discontinued or superceded lines that the testers choose to use, rather than the shiny new stuff that they get sent.

I like it so much that I am going to borrow the idea and call it my own - mainly because I don't get sent shiny stuff to review but also because I think kit needs to be tested to destruction before a decent conclusion can be reached and shared with others.
