It was unfair of me to expect Cy to talk about something that was essentially a business decision.
Nandrosol and Androsol were manufactured for us by a quirkly little company near San Diego.
We told them what we needed done, and they pretty much engineered a machine to do it. The machine was plagued by problems. It even caught on fire once. Lines got clogged all the time. They hated making it and they were often way behind the production schedule. The workers who made it had to dress like HazMat guys.
Even so, Nandrsol, being sort of a weak sister to Androsol, wasn't very popular. It was used mainly by guys who were overly paranoid about side effects. Androsol, however, sold well.
After a while, we never placed any more orders for Nandrosol.
In the meantime, we were working on MAG-10, and when Bill Roberts and Tim succeeded, we moved entirely in that direction and phased out Androsol entirely.
MAG-10 was just plain vastly superior (not to mention that Androsol was a pain to make).
