T Nation

T-Nation Shaker

I am tired of having a shaker with Max Muscle on the side, since their shaker and creatine are the only things I use…

I would love it if Testosterone came out with a shaker bottle…

How about it? Buy 5 Grow! and get a free shaker bottle…

It is a good way to brand T-Nation as well.

What a FUCKING FANTASTIC IDEA!

I was thinking about this the other day. I have a 1/2 dozen shakers from other companies and I really wish they were from T-Nation.

It beats the crap out of an Alpha Male T-shirt that only comes in XL.

This is a coincidence, I just said this about 2 hours ago in another thread on shakers. Sounds like the demand’s there, just need the supply now! The Deciples Demand it TC, Get on it!!!

I have a HOT-ROX Nalgene bottle that T-Nation shipped for free when HOT-ROX first came out. Of course, it’s clear red so my Surge looks bright pink in it - very “T” :wink:

A “T-Nation” branded bottle would be awesome…

I’m down to buy a couple if T-Nation ever makes them.

count me in!

I want one!

Yeah T-Nation, shaker bottles = free advertising for life. Just think all those gyms in the country with the biggest and baddest dudes around and they have T-Nation bottles.

I’m all for the shaker bottles, but do we really want a boat load of morons baraging the site?

I’ve always see T-Nation as a little home… I’d go for a tribal symbol on the bottle. If it said T-Nation.com on the side I think we’d be in trouble.

Think about it… everday:
“Yo Yo… I juz pickd up sum CreaTech and Nitrix… Gun get Jacked”


it could look like this.

That picture is sweet. That would be perfect. Count me in.

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…

Put me down for a half dozen.

Put me down for 3.
Another vote for the leak resistant screw-type tops.

Terumo hows this?

Nice.

My thought was using Nalgene bottles. You’ve got your 32 oz. capacity, screw on top, and if you happen to drop a plate on it you’ll be fine.
Also a good idea about the tribal, show it off but keep it mysterious.

Screw on lids ONLY. Particularly screw-on lids with the rubber gasket in the top. The tumbler needs to be at the very least semi-transparent in order to see the fluid and the graduations at the same time.

Only problem I have with Nalgene bottles is $$ and the inner edge is near impossible to clean.

Every nalgene bottle I own smells rancid.

I’m all for it. Just make sure it has the oz label on the side like ones from GNC have. I like the Alpha Male color scheme that was suggested.
