    They didn't have a rep for AM, and there wasn't much use of their forum. I guess they just didn't feel like expanding over in here; possibly due to the bias against their products many members have? (Pure Steveo speculation there)

    I wouldn't say their products are junk. They are overpriced though and there are a lot of better, more cost effective products on the market.

    That's why I said "compared". They are junk compared to the "better, more cost effective products on the market."

    I like Jack3d by USPlabs, and NoShotgun by VPX. Both are very good pre-workout, but I'm kinda stuck on Jack3d now, I don't think I'm going back to NoShotgun.

    If you get Jack3d, don't start with 3 scoops, even if you have a high tolerance to stims.

    pre workout and NO boosters are two different things. pre workout supps are high in caffeine, which makes NO not work very well. also because hydration is key with NO supps and taking a diuretic at the same dosing time as NO would be a bit of a waste. to use both, find a pre workout supp with B-12 and amino acids (or just pills + protein) and a NO booster of choice.

    I have actually heard that before, but they still seem to work for me. So, it's kind of one of those things, TO ME, "I have to see it, to believe it." Therefore, since these pre-workout supplements with Arginine (NO booster) with caffeine in them work for me, I, personally, really don't think it's true. Caffeine may have an effect on Arginine uptake, but it's probably so minimal, one wouldn't even notice.

    Just my opinion.

    Bias? If there is bias, all the more reason to come, no? At least, that's what I think...

    Perhaps, just throwing out speculation I do like their Syntha-6 flavouring, and we can't even keep their 60serving NO-Xplode in-stock at NP.

    Jack3d. I haven't tried NO Shotty, but there's no comparison between Jack3d and the others I've tried (NOxplode, Nano vapor, Black powder, Superpump250, couple others)

    Syntha-6 is tasty, but would use it as a meal replacement rather than a straight Whey product. Way too pricy.

    . . .oh, and 'The Phenom' Trey Brewer can take his wanky snarl and fuck right off - he will never be no Big Ron replacement in any respect.

    ive bought all the BSN stuff as im new to the game and didnt read up here first. I do like the syntha-6 stuff, ive tried the mocha flavour and cookies and cream flavour and both are delicious, i also like the fact that theres different speeds of protein in there. I have a much cheaper fast acting whey protein to drink after workouts, but i like to drink the syntha-6 before i go to bed cause it works through the night :P

    the NO explode i like as well it wakes me up a lot at the gym and i do train harder, its not the "cleanest" feeling though, can be a bit jiddery.

    Ye i get the impression the cell-mass and the nitrix are garbage though.

    Gonna try USPlabs Jacked next been hearing great things!

    Good post ^. I get absolutley no jitters from Jack3d. You get a pure, unadulturated pump and a dialed in focus.
