    Bottom line is their ridiculous, mis-leading marketing and how over-priced their products are.

    I don't like em all that much because they are a bit pricey, and tend to over hype their products via GNC or other shops like that. However i was a big fan of hydroxycut hardcore cause it enabled me to control my appetite a while ago. Whether it was part of the product i have no idea but it helped drop about 20lbs

    ok well if it is mainly price then it seems to me there is a huge dif. in price with most supplement companies. I have searched alot about ph tren and wow the price dif. is huge company to company. just as when you look at protein powders. I'm not at all saying you all don't have valid reasons just asking questions and stating things I see. i want alot of feed back so I am more knowledgeable about the subject. thanks.

    If you're asking whether or not you should stack Gakic and Leukic, then my answer to you is...I'm not sure. I'm not sure if you're that hardcore. I mean...I'm all about getting diesel, etc...but that stuff will make you so HYOOOGE you'll have to buy all new clothes. Just not worth it in my opinion.

    No worries brah, just breakin balls.

    I'll pretty much echo Rodja in saying their marketing is misleading the prices are super high for substances that you can obtain for much cheaper. You're basically paying for them to run all those annoying 5 page ads in Flex, MD, etc.

    Yeah. Anonymous supplement forum gurus and experts are right and the industries leading supplement manufacturer is wrong.

    You can claim, price, hype, marketing, advertizing, etc., etc. for reasons to dislike them but in the end it is irrelevant.

    Their industry wide success speaks volumes!

    There was a time when the AnabolicMinds community was quite ridiculed - even by current board sponsors - now the same now pay to be here.

    No idea what those past issues were...but if it helps y'all get sponsorships, offer good discounts, etc....allow me to say it (loud enough for the sponsors to hear it) MUSCLETECH PRODUCTS GET YOU JACKED! THEY'RE PRICED REASONABLY AND THEY DO EXACTLY WHAT THE ADS SAY THEY'LL DO......HELL, JAY CUTLER USES THEM!

    Look around. Me thinks we need no help

    But I do appreciate the sentiment.

    Now, back to your regularly scheduled supplement company bashing

    because muscletech swears that everything they have is "groundbreaking", when its really the kitchen sink approach - stick as much different crap into one place, and something is bound to happen... having tried cell-tech, and their "hardcore" version as well as nano-vapor, i can tell you i have experienced better gains using competitors products of the same nature, that cost half.

    then you look at some of these board sponsors, and they offer sample packets free from nutra. and they work better

    Yah, I'm disgusted with Muscletech too, but there are SOOO many companies that do the same thing ... hell even companies over here over-market/over-hype their product(s). People will always hate people at the top ($$$ wise).

    Just don't support those who you think are full of ****. Most people that are so convinced supplements are going to fix their problems are the people that need to take their money and spend it on a few psychiatrist sessions.

    I was guilty of this back in the day. It seemed like certain supp companies could come out with any product and people just loved it because of the company that put it out.

    "Such and Such labs is proud to present our latest in our muscle building product line! Methylated Human Feces! In lab tests on ****roaches growth was twice the rate when compared to placebo fed **** roaches. Our patented methylation process using cat urine and hobo hair in the 4th and 17th position of the molecule increases anabolism vs methyltestosterone 600%!"

    Member A: "Great presentation! The box looks awesome!"
    Member B: "I can't wait to try this, can I be an alpha tester?!?!?!?"
    Member C: "Such and Such always has solid products!"

    I cant speak as for the board in the past like some ppl are commenting as i am not nor have been truly involved... But as for muscle tech, everyone pretty much touched base on why ppl dont like them. Over pricing, mis marketing, etc. I personally wont purchase anything from them because i think they are ridiculous. Example being anabolic halo. Their original label stated their blend was powered by "patent pending jet pulverizing hammer milling bla bla bla technologies". When i first read that, i had to laugh and say what the ****? Also >70 ingrediants in 24.8 grams for their prop blend seems a bit off to me

    GNC also requires all employees to push all Muscletech products as much if not MORE than their own GNC products, which I think is ridiculous! GNC employess are FORCED to push and push and push Muscletech products(Which means MT must be greasing GNC's palms pretty damn good.) So, unsuspecting dip**** newbies coming in knowing absolutley nothing about supps. get bent over and Nano-Vapored in the a**, skeet skeet!! And GNC employees get higher commission off MT products. Products are CRAP & OVER PRICED, why else would they this, if products are good they should sell themselves.

    Well, with 19 of those 24.8 grams of supplement being two different carbs, you are only getting 5.8 grams of stuff. Cell Tech cost a lot and is mostly sugar. Dextrose IS basically table suger. Their products have always been overpriced, but now their usefulness is lacking too. Their products with stimulants (hydroxy and nano vapor) seem to be their two winners at the moment, and Nano is actually a very "hit olr miss" product. Some days it gives energy. Some days it makes you tired. It also has more blood pressure affecting ingredients than your average prewoukout.

    pretty intersting responces I received. I don't buy anything in a brick n mortar much less GNC so no worries for me there. Must be getting kick backs if they push it like that. I can agree with there marketing is outrageous especially if you read M&F which they have just about 100 ads in there.

    Any dislikes about EAS ? I personally like some other products.

    whats amazing is on BB.com a few years ago halo won new supplement of the year...it isnt that they dont work, they just dont work as advertised and are too much $

    I actually don t mind cryotest and Nano x9, but they certainly arent groundbreaking products

    EAS used to be really good circa 2000, but their business has changed immensely.

    everyone responds to different kinds of comedy. you don't have to like it--it's your God-given right. LOL make a better joke then.

    i saw a bumper sticker the other day that said: "Stop Bitching. Start A Revolution." i think that would fix a lot of the world's problems if people applied that idea.

    Its funny because a bunch of teens run out and are dropping 200-300 $$ a month of MT and think they are hard core, they walk around, toting it in their bags, letting it sit barely visible so as to peak peoples interest so they think they are cool and hardcore....every time I used to go into my old gyms locker room there was some anabolic halo or something in the trash can after the person finished the last dose, and all i could think was.... man that was 45 bucks wasted.

    Pop some IGF-2's and tell me if you dont notice some real effects going on(most uncontrollable libido of my life so far, guessing that will be trumped when I pin)

    This is a "Muscletech bashing" thread.....its stands to reason that there's gonna be folks poking fun at MT here. I'd relax and maybe un-sub the thread if you're expecting something different.
