So I bought some because I was skeptical of some of the reports I had been hearing about it. I have been dosing it all for about a week now and have been rather pleasantly surprised with it. While I think that I would need to use this product long term to see more benefits of the creatine, the pumps are great. To compare the pumps to being "on cycle" is a little far fetched for me. Its slightly weaker than what I have experienced on cycle but by far probably one of the best pumps I have gotten off a product. Vascularity is great as well. Definitely worth looking into if you are curious as well.
