Talking of DL eccentrics, some time ago I saw a vid in which the barbell was lifted up for the lifter and then the spotters let go and he did a very very slow eccentric phase back to the floor...for several reps, with the same pattern of two guys lifting the barbell to him in the standing/final position and him slowly lowering it under extreme control back to the floor.

So, maybe slow eccentrics are not so useless/pointless after all...and they were no lightweight; but, I'm not going to waste time searching out the vid, it may even be somewhere on the forum already anyway.
