what would be the point of this? I mean, it wont make or break your gains so why not stick with a BCAA product if you are going to take something intra?

Compete tastes fantastic and is a really solid intra-workout formula. At the prescribed dose (two scoops), you get nice doses of LCLT (2g), whey hydrolysate (5g) and others that should make a noticeable impact, as well as other ingredients like a strong focus complex and electrolytes.
Samples are available on our website - Tangy Tangerine, Fruit Punch, and Lemon Drop are all excellent when mixed with 20 ounces of water.

Have some Brondo, it's got electrolytes! It's what plants crave!
I really don't understand the aversion to bcaa's intra, but if you insist, I'd probably go with the calorie free propel drink

For those not familiar with Layne and his research into optimizing protein synthesis and optimal meal frequency, read his article Protein: how much and how often here… Basically: ingest a protein source providing a minimal threshold of amino acids (leucine in particular) spaced out every 3-5hrs or so to avoid the refractory response. This is when the muscle synthesis machinery stops responding if you keep amino acids constantly elevated. You want pulsation, a wave-like rise and fall in amino acid levels. Given that most foods take a few hours to digest a viable strategy is to eat a meal every 4-5 hours, then ingest a fast protein source such as whey or even BCAAs with or without some carbs 2hrs before and after meals. Carbs actually seem to prolong MPS (Muscle Protein Synthesis) even if they don’t specifically add to the amplitude or total effect.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15173434 "BCAA supplementation before and after exercise has beneficial effects for decreasing exercise-induced muscle damage and promoting muscle-protein synthesis"
"Data show that BCAA supplementation before and after exercise has beneficial effects for decreasing exercise-induced muscle damage and promoting muscle-protein synthesis."
Also helpful in maintaining the immune system after intense prolonged exertion:
"The data obtained show that BCAA supplementation can reverse the reduction in serum glutamine concentration observed after prolonged intense exercise such as an Olympic triathlon."
Though I will be the first to admit that Coop knows an aweful lot about an aweful lot, and is probably privy to the latest studies on these things.

For most scenarios BCAAs are best taken pre/post rather than intra-workout as you are looking to hit a bolus of aminos (specifically Leucine) rather than a slow ingestion of them. The studies posted above also are accounting for this as pre/post and not during exercise.
