    lets be honest, if Muscle Tech sold every product at $20 there would be a lot less bad rep.

    but they don't so hate away

    I figured muscle tech was gonna get a bad rap when I created this thread lol... I'm more interested I guess in supplement companies that may not get a lot of recognition but put out great stuff

    What about Driven Sports for under-rated. So far I've not come across one person who's not liked their Lean Xtreme and Act Xtreme formulations. Small number of products, but very solid nonetheless.

    Honestly, I don't think NOW is underrated at all. Their not overrated either; but they are an incredibly common brand that I know most people on this board (and other boards) use for at least something.

    Also, IMO, Avant is by far the most underrated company on AM. I mean, Napalm freaking revolutionized fat-loss as far as I'm concerned.

    Iv'e come from the cesspit that is BB.com Forums, and let me just say...WOW The fact this thread hasnt degenerated into a bunch of 15 year old kids abusing each other is amazing! This place rocks. Obviously a much higher calibre of trainer over here, or alot of banning

    Anyway, thats enough of giving ya'll a big head back to the thread....

    Im not a rep or related to the company at all but this statement is bizarre. They dont tout their products to do anymore than research has proven. Want creatine in pill or powder you got it, want a pre-workout in pill or powder you got it, want a multivitamin with joint support you got it.

    Nobody mentioned CORE Nutritionals as being way underrated ??


    Core ZAP is above and beyond the best pre-workout supplement on the market, ever. Doug got that formula PERFECT.

    It's a shame Nutra doesn't carry stock of it anymore.

    Ha! thats because Its a cesspit like I said. Every single thread degenerates quickly into abuse back and forths, wich while sometimes amusing are not cool when its just constant. All that anyone over there says is "Brah" and "You mad" Its just crap! You cant get any decent advice/opinions on AYTHING.
