Received wisdom changes over time (look at the running shoe industry over the last 30 years), and so sometimes the received wisdom in sports science world needs to be checked against common sense and personal experience. What works best for you is always going to be the best choice in your training.
If you buy a new piece of equipment because you have looked and looked, exhaustively researched and decided it is the right purchase for you, then you get excited about taking that new equipment out to do lots and lots of training with it, then that is great!
If you buy a new piece of equipment because you think it looks cool and flashy, and you think people will look at you admiringly, then that makes you want to take that new equipment out and do lots and lots of training... then that is great, too.
Whatever works for you.
So, let's start with the science and the received wisdom, ask lots and lots of questions, keep looking for answers, keep this dialogue going for as long as we find it interesting and useful.
