If I'm not using CEE/ Kre-Alkalyn caps as they are rather cheap and more effective with me than Creatine Mono, I use MAN's Clout... There is a lot of science and supporting evidence to back up it's claims. A formula in which I can tell both recovery and muscular fatigue is enhanced.

The best creatine supplement I've ever used was Syntrax Swole, bar none.
I've never responded to a supplement as well as this one, and I've tried quite a few. Give it a shot.

Have you tried their other swole products- swoleN, and 2.0(or whatever the one is that contains annydrous)? If so, which did you like better quigs?

I second Clout. Nothing comes close. I've likely used more than nearly any other MAN customer.Originally Posted by TheUnlikelyToad
It aids strength, endurance, AND recovery. It's not a 'kitchen sink' formula; everything has a specific purpose, and is included in precisely the amounts needed for effectiveness. The amounts of each ingredient are large, so it's not expensive for what you're getting.
and a bunch more. MassPump is my second choice: simple, cheap, and effective, with a good amount of Citrulline, instead of just arginine bull****.

I've also tried many and I'd agree Swole V2 was one of the best. However, I've found Xpand by Dymatize to be the best. It tastes really good, has a good miz of advanced creatines, AAKG, glutamine, etc.
I've gained/maintained lot of strength w/ it and it's not grainy or unpleasant to have to choke down. I've only used the orange, but it tastes really good.

Di-creatine malate. Cheap, effective, pleasant taste and doesn't come bundled with a bunch of crap I don't want/need.
This is just my opinion, it is what I like. It is my favorite, not my exclusive. Not downing all the other formulas out there and in fact I am using Chaos right now for the energy/mental lift it gives me.
I really like adding a couple grams of the di-creatine in with my AP dose. Really adds to muscle fullness.

I've gotta' be honest- SyntheSIZE.
CEE, leucine, NAC, Aminogen (for improved protein digestion), etc. I put on 5 lbs. in the first five days being a tester.
But surprisingly, a close second-best is Body Fortress' formula that is available in Wal-Mart, and a close third is V-12.

I currently take six star from Walmart. What would you suggest to take that would be of better benifit?
I have responded well to the six star, It takes longer for me to fatigue at the gym

Because the feedback is overwhelmingly positive. Plus, a lot of people respond to CEE who don't respond to CM- the so-called "non-responders".
Lastly, Patrick Arnold backs it and frankly, that should be enough for anyone.

I wouldn't take PA's word for it: others disagree with that assessment, but fair enough. It IS really popular, and those who like it, LOVE it.

I'd say MassPumpStack with creatine gluconate. I'm looking forward to trying Clout and Creulin(Cialabol). Not a fan of CEE, it seems to hurt my stomach.

I'm really digging ON's Vassive CEE/NO stack currently. It's kinda spendy but extremely convenient for my lfiestyle (individually packaged servings). Aside from that my second fav was Chaos from Anabolic Innovations. I've tried several others including just bulk CEE and was nearly sure i was a non-responder. I worked out today without anything (for the first time in a couple months and I REALLY did not have the quality of workout i'm use to.
Anyway - I see very little feedback on Vassive so I thought I'd add my 2 cents - whatever thats worth...

WOW I pop back on tonight and this has been one active thread. Thanks for all the feedback and keep it coming. I have to sit back and try to digest this info.
One question for the Clout fans.....does it have creatine in it? I know it has orotine, orotic acid and some other goodies.

For me personally, number one would be sizeon. Also really liked green mag, and for the money nutra's masspump stack is also great. Best results I ever had was half serving of green mag and 2/3 of size on. As others have mentioned, DS xceed, MAN's products, and SNS cvm all have a ton of good feedback. A lot of it is up to the individual and how they respond really.

No, I've only tried the Swole V3. I found it to be so effective that I really didn't see the need to try other products. I got a couple tubs for $15ea when NP had that huge sale. It's 60 servings/container but I found it most effective when taking 2 servings on training days (one preworkout, the other later that evening).Originally Posted by prld2gr8ns

Well, let me just say this- if you can't trust Patrick Arnold or Par Deus (my boss) in terms of supplement science, then you can't trust anybody.Originally Posted by poison

Never heard of the Clout product until now. You all recovering better, and getting leaner etc? thanks
01-29-2007, 10:03 AM
classic micronized creatine mono would be my best response to creatine but i havent tried much else besides Omega Thunder, CEE caps, Cell tech, and Swole V3. Swole V3 looked good on paper and the price per serving was great but the taste was sick and i never took it consistantly and kinda put it away in the supplement stash. Im looking forward to SizeON tho'.

Yes, Clout works rather well and I fully support their product line with good reason.Originally Posted by mwkcronin
