» What speaks against a pilot study?

Unfortunately, it's not a common practice in our country (Belarus). If not a pilot study what are other options? Sequential (if yes, how to implement it)? The usual 2X2 design with arbitrary, say a bit more than 30 subjects, sample size? Any other reasonable approaches?

In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice.
But, in practice, there is.    Jan L.A. van de Snepscheut
