God, no! Cool design, but please do not consider any lids that are snap-on! Screw-tops only! No spoke grates, either. Mesh is superior.
As for the original idea, purely brilliant. If you want my two cents on aesthetics, go with something in a black and electric green, as in the Alpha Male caps. I wouldn’t mind seeing a higher capacity shaker than the standard 24 oz. I’ve been wanting a high-quality 32+ oz. bottle for years.
I do, however, know that the markup on shaker bottles is not that great. If you just printed the T-Nation logo on The Ultimate Shaker cups (the standard industry practice), you’d probably be looking at about a $2 net per sale (at retail standard). Blah… However, I’d gladly order a dozen and throw out all of my SportPharma, GNC, ProPerformance, Promax, and BodyTech bottles (they all have an “aroma,” anyway).
Just a thought…
