All weapons and armour now conform to a set of standards. This means that many have been upgraded while others have been downgraded. The result of this is that just because a weapon used to be uber or used to be rubbish it may not be so now. Of course the same applies to armour.
In addition vurdere and judge only consider the armour & weapons damage or protection values. Neither command takes into account durability or weight. Yet as you know, in combat greater weight can be either an advantage or a disadvantage depending on the circumstances.
Thus, even though a weapon or armour may be listed as 'excellent' remember to consider the impact of weight when determining if it is truly better for you than an 'extremely good' alternative.
In short, experiment. You may find some equipment that you once dismissed as useless actually works pretty well now.
