Positives and negatives in an unbiased review? Delivered. I would consider a review biased if I only focused on one aspect of a product :-)
Ray, wasn't the first time for me. My understanding has been that such products are nearly in the production line, but might have a few tweaks left before a full roll-out. A pack I reviewed, for example, came with a pre-production foam backpanel. I did also receive the production foam panel before completing my review.
If the fact that my Cadions had a partial delam means, to an individual or group of readers, that the Cadions are junk, that's okay! I do strive for balanced, unbiased reviews... and a simple presentation of facts or experiences that allows people to draw their own conclusions. Sometimes it doesn't work out that way, or isn't called for! But bottom line, if the delam=pure junk to you, cool. The review helped you... don't get 'em ;) If you like more information to draw some of your own conclusions, I tried to deliver that, too.
Shoot, if nothing else, what fun is a one-sentence review? "These sucked." Er, okay... why? What wasn't good about them? Were they completely junk, or were there any redeeming qualities? Is that seriously all you're going to write? Isn't there something more? No other observations after using and testing a product? Ya know it's true :p
I'm glad to have readers who care so much about our sport and its products!
