I use slow eccentrics now, sparringly (if at all). For example, I was out of town a few weeks ago and the timeshare I was at only had dumbells that went up to 50lbs. In order to have a semi effective upper body session, I did slow eccentrics on the flat db bench. I felt using them allowed me to get a decent workout in.
Another example is band tricep pulldowns at home. I only have minibands. I have started using slow eccentrics to increase the usefulness of the movement. Still though, this is on an ancillary movement and I am still hammering my triceps with heavy OHP, heavy bench press, Incline press, and CGBP through out the week.

I am not a powerlifter nor am I a bodybuilder. I just want to be big and strong.

I do them sometimes on isolation type movements. Other than that, I don't think you could convince me of it being a smart decision on a compound movement.
