    Flashover VS Maximize V2


    How does flashover compare to maximive V2. long time fan on the MV2, but flashover is a great price right now at the planet and looks to be a very similar profile.

    thanks

    I just tried Flashover last night, I was impressed I found it was pretty good, I'd say close to MaximizeV2, but I still like the ingredient lay out a little more in MaximizeV2. Taste wise MaximizeV2 takes it, I found the taste of Flashover was pretty bad.

    Thanks man.

    So the flashover tase is pretty bad--like hard to get down?


    i do like the taste of both MV2 flavors.

    Thing about flashover is no prop blends which I always appreciate.

    It's def worth picking up, but I can't even compare the taste to any other pre-workouts, I thought JP8 tasted better, but may just be me. Great price at Nutraplanet right now.

    I have both. I like both. Flashover tastes fine to me. A little like cheap bubble gum tho. The main thing with Flashover is the residue- always add a little water and shake after you are done to get all the GMS. However, I believe it is being reformulated to have a more mixable form. Still, I just think of them as flavor crystals

    Energy - slight edge to MV2

    Crash - Even, as in none for either. However MV2 seems to stay with me for hours and hours.

    Pump - Edge to Flashover

    Focus - about the same

    Euphoria(if you care about that) - MV2

    Sometimes I even do a half dose of each...Just for the hell of it. All in all both are fine products.

    i have both of them right now here at my desk at my office. I like the taste of Maximizev2 to be zippin at it for a while, with cold water it almost taste like c light fruit punch. Flash over for me it doesnt taste bad actually it taste like spermint gum.

    Efect wise i like both of them. but Maximize effect last longer after i workout lol so i either have to take it like at-3-4pm or take it at 7pm preworkout(usually workout at 8pm) and realize that im not going to get some sleep like till 5 am.

    but both of them are g2g on my book

    NP. If you've never tried a product containing GMS, drink lots of water before, during, and after. Really helps the pump aspect.

    i see they changed the GMS for glycine in flashover now if u check the nutra ingredient profile. i tried a sample of flashover AFTER i passed the deal for it last time for $15 and i was blown away by it (2 scoops flash felt like 3 scoops of jack3d). i still want to try out maximize and had it in the cart till nutra added in flashover for their sale.

    Solid comparison! That will be very helpful to many, I am sure! I never tried flashover, but Maximize def is solid and doesn't let very many if any down.

    Very interesting, they both look like they would be awesome pre workout products. Im wondering how removing GMS and adding glycine changed the pump effect, cause i know GMS is very noticeable however havent heard the same for glycine.

    I liked flashover and I like MV2..
    MV2 had better energy and focus.
    Flash had more of a pump.
    MV2 tastes mucho better..

    Both are great.

    I think it's a scam. They took something that was clumpy, and replaced it with something that could be a fine powder, and sounded similar. I don't think the similar sounding compound dose the same thing though. It's just a trick to make people think the product still works as good.

    Mr. Dong, I don't think that is Omega's style. They have one of the better reputations out there as far as I know. Plus, it still has L-Norvaline in it and I think that helps too...Would love for a knowledgable non-rep or one that's not just pimping their product to chime in...

    I have so much stuff already that I won't be getting any for awhile. Would love to sample and tell you for myself though.

    i wouldnt call it a scam, GMS is dirt cheap so u could just throw in some bulk if u really want it. either way with all the stims it has, it wont negatively affect your pump. and for the price (half what jacked is now) theres no way you can say anything negative about it. im gona try two scoops tomorrow and ill let you know how it goes. usually i can only take jacked once a week if i take no other stimulants all week. if i do this it has a decent effect at 3 scoops, any more frequent and it doesnt do sh1t. i took it monday and didnt do hardly anything, then only took one scoop of flashover wednesday and i felt it better than what jacked did for me. im gona take 2 scoops tomorrow and ill let you know how the pump is. the original flashover gave me an awesome pump from the gms, so i will compare to that.

    water was high, but i did only intake 20g carbs roughly an hour before i lifted. that was my breakfast. perhaps that could have been it. but if so, then it would be the carbs giving me the pump instead. hard to say. but i had an amazing pump from the sample i had containing GMS. did the layne norton chest/arm routine with a buddy and i felt like killing babies and lifting forever. pump was awesome

    Don't forget that carbs help with the hydration of the muscle cell. You need glycogen to have a pump, too.

    Why are people sticking up for this? GMS gives pumps. Glycine, not so much.

    In this instance, Matt and Omega have a stellar reputation and should be given the benefit of the doubt. I'm sure if you ask him directly that he'd give you an answer for the switch.

    I have used both multiple times, with no carbs, more carbs, low water, a lot of water.. Old version better pumps hands down.
