    no i am not. as a matter of fact I'm not a user of Bpi products except for BLOX. i think the 1MR PWO sucks. but yes its from personal experience. like i said, if you have a couple dollars laying around, give it a try

    Honestly the only reason to go with ajinomoto is if you want the source material. There is no other appreciable difference (even mixing and taste is varied among products)
    Or maybe they are insinuating other products are only 1/6th as pure as their 100% pure product, meaning 16.6% purity :O

    lol

  3. Bulk modern bcaas are such a killer deal as mentioned it's hard to go for any other source. 1 kilo for 29.99. Problem is it tastes pretty bad and has such a strong tinge of medicine in their peach flavor. Definitely going to try grape next time. Mixes incredibly well, too! 20 seconds, boom! 12g fully dissolved in 22oz.

    The Wraath is da bomb

  5. Anyone try ALRI chain'd out?

  6. Nutra planet bulk BCAA and body mortar! Ftw

    Agreed, taste is important and PW tastes great, not to mention works very well.
    Xtend is also good, as well as RecoverPro. All 3 would be great picks.

  9. Blox looks promising. It looks good enough to try it.

  10. I really like xtend and Modern bcaa from personal experience. I like xtend a little better because the flavors I've tried so far (watermelon and green apple) taste like jolly ranchers which is refreshing intra-workout imo. Also I would like to give purple wraath a try because minus not having glutamine, the profile looks legit!

  11. Modern BCAA for sure; great profile and I like that it has the sustamine in it, rather than glutamine, which is rather unstable

  12. I tried a few samples of BPI blox and I have to admit that stuff tastes better than any other Amino acid product.

  13. Dymatize Elite Recoup orange is pretty good and AI Recovery Pro Raspberry is also good.

    Question, can u cap the powder & avoid drinking it?? I know that would add up to a bunch of caps per serving, but this would bi-pass the taste & be more convieniet. The real question is, would i get the same benefits or will capping it make it less effective??

    Good taste, mediocre results. Recovery with modern bcaa is much better!

    it wouldn't make it less effective, it would be a pain in the ass to cap it tho...

    you could get generic bcaas already capped but then you're not gonna get the sustamine, 8:1:1 ratio, or price point.

  19. i love bcaas they awesome

  21. I've tried modern bcaa in their bubble gum flavor, worst thing ever!

    I've currently got a tub of the old and a tub of the new scivation extend in watermelon, amazing flavor!!

  22. Xtend is very good the new one even better as they've add glutamine with it great tasting too. Another good one is bsn ammino x but id say a little pricey but great tasting

    Bulk modern > all bcaa

  24. I just can't get the Modern one to freaking blend, AT ALL.

    I even put it in a shaker, nothing. Still a bunch of particles all over. And barely a taste to it, it seems just like dirt water. I man up and take it anyways, but God, the Grapple reminds me of nothing remotely close to a Grape or an Apple.

    I usually go with tap water, which isn't the coldest one... Guess I can try a bit of a warmer version to see... Still doesn't sound too appetizing lol

    try room temp (ish) and then ice or fridge after its mixed.
    the sustamine allows it to keep longer.

  31. If u let it sit for a few minutes the leucine will disolve. The liquid will look apparently clear. That is what I do. If u want a stonger taste use less water.

  32. modern bcaas is my first choice recover pro second

  33. What's the deal with this stuff? Another typical BPI scam?

    I don't notice any difference. As far as recovery goes youre better off with bcaa. But that's just my experience.

  35. IMO, and at the end of the day, the differences in all these BCAA's are so negligible, just stick with the cheap stuff

    But I will say, blox tastes pretty good.

  37. blox is delicious BUT cant justify the cost compared to tried and true eaa/bcaa products, i use whatever is cheap at the time or what i pick up from the auction

  38. I've been using USPs Modern BCAAs for a while. I toss two scoops into my pre w/wo. Mixes well and tastes ok. I recently grabbed some unflavored BCAAs by Body Strong. Reviews said it mixed as well as USPs and they were correct. So now I'm tossing the unflavored into my FLAVORED pre w/o.

    When I run out, I'm might try a product mentioned in this thread. Purple Wraath. BCAA/EAA sounds very interesting if tossed into my pre w/o.

    My post workout shake, ON Hydrowhey, has a nice BCAA blend so i dont add to it.

  39. Leucine is the most important one...

    SNS Leucine is the way to go.

  40. Yes but you need the other BCAA's (+ some times EAA's) to work in tandem AND prevent overuse of Luecine for the wrong intended purposes (energy, etc)

    Alanine is a solid one that often gets overlooked
