  1. Prodigy vs Volatile (users of both)


    Currently using Prodigy and loving it. However my interest has been peaked by Volatile. I'm curious if anyone has used both and how they would compare them. Thanks.


  2. I have not tried both but after using volatile, it would be very hard to try something else.

    The energy is nice, focus is great and pumps are just insane !

  3. Well seeing as how volatile has only 9g of a huge prop blend and prodigy has 12.5g of active ingredients I'd have to put my money on prodigy whether I'm a rep or not...just look at all the reviews on prodigy and you won't want to change your mind

  4. Have to admit. I bought the volatile, tried it once & didn't care for it. I've been using craze with hemavol & haven't found anything better. Sometimes i even throw in 2 agmatine caps just for fun.

    BINGO. Never used Volatile, but I'm not a fan of "large" proprietary mixes. Most of the time they have tons of stuff in it. Some may work, but it's never at the proper dosages. Prodigy is going to give you scientifically proven ingredients at the right dosages. You can't beat it for effectiveness. I had very high expectations for Prodigy and they have been surpassed, which rarely happens with pre-workout products.

  11. I've been using the watermelon and I love it. I have a tub of fruit punch. I'm not a fruit punch guy usually, but I think I'm going to bust it open If it is tart like the watermelon I think I'll like it a lot. I can't wait to drink my Prodigy tonight before I train arms.

  12. At 32 servings of over 9 grams of active ingredients Volatile is a great pre workout. We have have excellent reviews and quite a few logs on multiple forums for you to check out. We think that you would be very satisfied with Volatile if you were to try it. I will not get into the prop blend issue when both products asked about are Prop blends and obviously for the same reason.
    Thanks

    Its not for every one however thanks for giving it a try. Both are prop blends so the "huge prop blend" statement is irrelevant. I havent tried prodigy but both seem to have great reviews.

  14. As for 12.5 grams versus 9 grams of active ingredients, it's more about the ingredients themselves being in adequate doses and in the right proportion rather than the amount of active in total.

    As an example you can super dose many supplements and they will have no additional benefit or may actually become detrimental in their effects. Creatine for one does not benefit from higher dosing as once saturation levels have been reached it can't go any further, it's similar with many other components of pre workouts and other supplements. Since both of these are proprietary blends we can't really talk about the amounts per component but just the fact that the 12.5 grams versus 9 grams isn't really that important.

    Both formulas have a nice array of NO boosters, but I really like the fact that Volatile also includes green coffee extract which will enhance the pump as well as give a nice energy boost, as will the B vitamins which Prodigy is also without.

    I'm also a fan of using a creatine blend like we do to maximize effect across as broad a range of users as possible. Not everyone reacts well to mono, malate, kre-alk, hcl or whatever so using multiples is ideal IMO.

    Finally the Osmo-Load complex in Volatile is the kicker. While the other components maximize muscle volume, pump, contraction and endurance, this helps (among other things) to enhance post workout nutrient re-uptake which should enhance recovery.

    So those in my opinion would be the major differences between Volatile and Prodigy.

    That being said I've never tried Prodigy but I'm sure its a great product that works well for many people. That's why there are so many pre's out there, everyone likes something different and responds to ingredients differently. Personally I have never tried a pre I liked close to as much as Volatile!

    Id be more than happy to try out Prodigy at some point and post up an honest review if a rep wanted to send me a packet! I'll even trade for a scoop and a half of Volatile and a scoop of Endurance BCAA which is what I do pre workout now if the rep would post up a review for us too!

    There's more than enough room for everyone!

    SAMPLES?

  16. I have only used prodigy a few times. It is a good product. Taste decent, pumps are on par with most pre's and energy is high.

    With that said , the reason I wanted to rep for Formutech Nutrition is because of volatile pre workout. The energy is not as hard hitting as others, which is great for afternoon workouts. When you are to wavy stim based it affect the pumps and keeps me up all night. The pumps are through the roof, best I ve ever had. Focus is on par with the tip pre workouts. At 9g per serving you are getting a great bang for the buck.

    Obviously I rep for Formutech, but I do stand behind the quality and think you should definitely try it out. You won't be disappointed.

    Yes, as a company owner you and I know it is important to protect our intellectual property rights. Unfortunately, this is a copycat industry and people will clone a formula to make a quick buck.

    So true. Unfortunately, it off-puts some consumers. I've tried both products and each of them speaks for themselves - two fine examples of solid prop-blend pre-workouts. OP, I'd recommend picking up a tub and trying for yourself - that way you'll know for certain because with most products, no two people have the "exact same" experience. For me, Volatile is great for pumps and focus whereas for others, the energy-boosting aspect stands out.

    Also, consider the stimulant content of each and decide which fits best for your training/lifestyle right now. I know that Volatile is a low stim supp, but I'm not supp about Prodigy. Maybe a PNI rep will chime in an mention the "relative" level of stims per serving...

    Prodigy IMO has a moderate stimulant effect. Caffeine, Theobromine, Glucuronolactone and their Orchid extract.

    I certainly had to be sold on Prodigy when PNI approached me about leaving EFX and joining their team. Well, after a week of the sickest workouts I had in all of 2012 on Prodigy lets say I was MORE THAN intrigued (and as you can see, the rest is history!).

    Not to contest your point, but the proper doses of the ingredients in both products are common knowledge to any educated consumer in this industry. Personally, I'm very impressed with, say, Paragon, and I wouldn't care for it at all if it were proprietary. I think you'd benefit from making Prodigy non-proprietary as well, as most of your consumers are probably educated and the "intellectual property" behind any ingredient can be found by googling said ingredient. Those are my thoughts as a consumer.

    This is an unfair comparison. For instance, judging by the blends alone, COP and Citrulline Malate are underdosed in prodigy but contribute to the size of the active blend.

    The same issue is present in Volatile. The label is definitely wrong on Volatile actually and needs correction. Unless there actually is less than 20 mg of caffeine, agmatine, GCB, etc.

    If you think the Citruline and COP is underdosed in Prodigy then concentrated preworkouts must really chap your butt huh?

  26. Reading lables and analyzing only gets one so far. It tells you what to expect. What a pre workout formula actually delivers can only truely be determined by giving it a shot.

    I respect Coop's knowledge on supplement ingredients as much or more than anyone else here, and the ingredient profiles are good in both products. Trying both Prodigy and Volatile is the only true way to determine which will perform better for the consumer.

    Head to head comparison is the only way to go!

    LOL I had no intentions for the thread to turn into this. I have been using Prodigy and love (just ordered more) it. I like the profile for Volatile and was curious if someone had tried both and could compare them. Do you guys have Volatile samples?
