    I used Creatine Nitrate on a cut and it was perfect, no bloat, just lean, dry and vascular.

    In short, yes!

    Creatine is a zero-calorie, lean mass stimulator. It is an important part of the bodybuilder’s arsenal to gaining a bigger, stronger, leaner physique. Of the hundreds of studies that have examined creatine’s effects on body composition, the vast majority show very favorable increases in the lean mass to fat ratio. If maximum muscle gains are desired, I cannot see a reason to exclude creatine during any attempt at fat loss. Combined with the correct, calorie-restricted eating plan, creatine will only serve to accelerate your fat loss efforts, not impede them.

    It helps you maintain that hard earned muscle mass so I would think it's essential. Let's not forget that the more muscle you have the higher your metabolism is

    what are your thoughts on making you look more soft but larger vs your goal on cutting (being more vascular, leaner)

    Creatine can give you that sort thickened appearance, but I really think it's unique to the person taking it, in regards to how much size they can put on with it.

    Just to follow up, on CN to my eyes and others, I appear leaner, more muscular/defined;however, my scale weight hasn't changed. I just appear drier, leaner and more vascular, most likely because I'm holding less water.

    Creatine is a STAPLE supplement and should be used ALL the time, regardless of your goal, IMO. If you use the excuse that you cannot effectively or successfully cut whilst using creatine, you're full of bull and not doing something right in the areas that matter!
