Just a question for my fellow outdoor enthusiasts and reviewers.
When do you feel is the right time to post a review? A few weeks? Months? A year even?
I tend to be fairly reserved and want to give things a good try before I judge them, either too harshly or with too much enthusiasm. Most of what I have reviewed has seen good use, and even though I enjoy writing reviews, I tend to wait a while before doing so..... the downside of that approach is that items that are new to the market dont have many adequate reviews, and many of the items I end up reviewing are now out of date can no longer be purchased at most places!
At the moment I am "sitting" on the following things just waiting for the right time to review, but I just dont think I am ready yet! (weird huh?) Eureka Taron 3, Petzl Charlet Snowalker axe, TNF Point Five goretex pro and Apex Bionic jackets, MH LoDown vest, LED Lenser H7 and P5e torches, Lightwave Wildtrek 60 rucksack, Merrell Proterra shoes, Hillsound trail crampons, and the list goes on and on...
Am I being too conservative? What is your approach?
