Default Decline Bench...Bastard Press?

Decline Bench...Bastard Press?

What say you? I've been mulling over the merits of the decline press lately, and quite frankly, I can't see much use in it. I ran it very briefly a few years ago, but I don't have much to say about it either good or bad.

Should I train it? Will it help my flat bench and/or OHP? Am I getting just as much bang for my buck by doing dips? Is it a good strength exercise, or is it merely a "bodybuilding exercise" to target my lower pecs?

Where does the decline bench press rank in the pantheon of pressing movements? Does it belong, or is it just a bastard press?
