I have been out of the loop in NT studies for some years, but I remember 
always finding Blass/DeBrunner much more useful than Robertson for many 
reasons, one of the chief of which was its managability!  I had a 
seminary professor who said that they had no need for Robertson's grammar 
around his house now that his children were grown.  It's chief role had 
been that of a booster seat to help the kids reach the table!  :-)
