Epistane vs. H-drol for recomp
Has anyone used both Epistane and H-drol for recomp? If so, what did you like the best? I'm using Epistane now and like it but I've always wanted to use H-drol and am thinking of stocking up while I can.
Does anyone have an opinion about which is better for recomp? I'm not looking for a lot of strength or mass gains.

Sorry... I haven't used either, but it seems like more people are able to effectively cut, with minimal sides, using H-drol compounds. With that in mind, I think you could comfortably recomp with it. Also, H-drol has a longer half-life in the body, making it easier to dose at the minimal dosage and still have enough circulating in the body. Successful recomp/cutting cycles consisting of only 75mg per day are not uncommon. Overall H-drol postcycle should be a breeze.
Now regarding Epistane, although this is a good compound, its anti-estrogen traits are like a double-edge sword. The very thing that makes this compound so great is also causing some users to complain about joint pain and rebound gyno. In addition, since Epistane's half-life is shorter than H-drol's, a higher dose of Epi may be needed. In short, higher dosages = more sides. Lastly, from what I understand, Epistane compounds may have a very short shelf-life. I remember reading somewhere that after about 6 months to 1 year the compound might lose up to 50 percent of its original potency. I'm not sure how valid this is, but if true, then that just answered your question regarding stocking up.
Best of luck with your recomp cycle.

diet. ph's will just help you retain muscle mass. thats all. its the diet and cardio/workout program that does the trick.
Hell, go with an SD for a recomp. none of which will matter unless the two aforementioned pieces are in place!!

Thanks for the replies guys. I don't want to take SD as I know it is very liver toxic. I think I will go for h-drol.
wolfe14 I know h-drol was very popular when it came out but then Epi became very popular when it came out. I don't know why people stopping taking h-drol as much cause I've heard nothing but good about it.

I just finished an Epistane cycle that lasted 5 weeks, and I was pleased with my recomp. I did the cycle simply to get rid of some fat and add some muscle, and it did just that. I lost about 6 lbs of fat and gained 6 lbs of muscle. More vascularity and definition. I had zero sides and minimal shutdown. Week 1 - 10 mg ED, week 2 - 20 mg ED, weeks 3 and 4 - 30 mg ED, and week 5 - 40 mg ED. I kept the doses low just to check it out since I have never used a PH before. I am using Formex, Prime, ZMA, and milk thistle for PCT. I don't require a SERM for mild compounds and minimal shutdown. Strength was also up on cycle - I set several personal bests.
