    +1 for this, given how long you've been involved and that you've probably met 95% of the bigger players.

    Driven Sports - Everything that I tried in their line met claims and then some. Triazole for me was a grand slam.
    Musclefeast - nothing but quality bulk products and home to the the best dosed PWO on the market.
    PES - again met and exceeded all claims on every single one of their products.

    Runner Ups (only because I've never really used their entire lines)

    Athletic Xtreme - tried a few of their products and all worked well and met claims
    Iforce - same as AX

    I'm probably forgetting some but those are just a few off the top of my head.

    You are in the forum titled "Advanced Discussion With Patrick Arnold".

    My name is Southpaw Arnold! I actually thought it was an open discussion for members. It's my fault for only glancing at the forum title, and not thoroughly paying attention. My sincere apologies to all.

    yea I didn't figure to get a real answer on this one but thought I'd give it a shot.I understand how this thread here could take a massive turn in a heartbeat.any chance of getting a general list or answer.a safe answer if possible.if not I completely understand given the past and etc of some things.

    Yeah this I am more interested in than anything; I could see how that would net some questions as to why that probably have some good reasons behind them (all of MuscleTech would be a start).
    If my direct and cynical approach bothers you, just ignore it. I'm just saying what you need to hear ;).

    i am good friends with don orrell from AN, Matt Pearson from Genomyx, Dave Rosland from xtreme formulations, and of course several people i have worked with in the past with my company. I respect all these people in different ways

    Outside of the nutritional supplement industry there are many people i admire and respect as well

    I guess a better way to put it would be people you have worked with at any given point who you found to be very good at what they do and made working with them or knowing them a fulfilling time.

    How about I name a company and you roll your eyes to the degree with which they annoy you and I try to guess how much you rolled them...oh wait, that won't work either. jk!

    I go wander the desert for 6 months and come back to find PA kicking it at AM...a very pleasant surprise. Brain drain reversal. Hope the trend continues.
