Opinions on MHP Dark Matter?

I tried to search if anyone on here is using this for PWO. I know that Surge dominates, but I was wondering if anyone had used this and disliked it or liked it, or if by reading the ingredients it’s a worthwhile product.

Bueller? Bueller?

Trash

is it really that hard to ask for an explanation.

thoughts? reasoning? why is it trash?

First off it’s “trash” because you’re on a site of Biotest enthusiasts, so anything else will always be trash.

As for my own opinion…(which is based solely on the label)

Pros:
No fat.

Cons:
It would be nice if it had more protein
It would be nice to see a bit more sugar.
I’d rather a simpler profile of creatine, it’s like the kitchen sink of creatine there. (or at least it reads that way)
I’d like to see the breakdown of Amino Acids

Neutral:
Waxy Maize - since I don’t have any experience with Waxy Maize, I can’t say anything good or bad.

Conclusion:
For me, it wouldn’t be my first choice, but if it was the ONLY product available in my local shop, I might at least try it once.

that’s what my opinion was on it as well. I tried to email MHP about what you asked and I got the sales pitch. I’ve used this stuff before, and I do feel like I’m less sore/tired the next day. I’m not sure if just the waxy maize or the creatine, but I would like to know how many grams I’m getting of each.
