The real reason is the 1,3, dimeth. Its not a badass pwo, average at best. There are quite a few I could name off the top of my head that are better.

Jacked definitely won't be as widely available as it was before, but I think that GNC and UPS labs are both still selling it, and fighting the FDA on this.  Jacked and OEP are USP's flagship products, and killing them off will be like killing off the entire company so I doubt that they'll give up without a good fight.

As a pwo, Jacked was badass when it first came out, and set a new standard for pre-workouts.  But since then, plenty of other companies have come out with better, more powerful ones.  IMO the good old ECA stack (with ephedrine hcl) is still the most powerful pwo; that stuff is straight up adrenaline into you system and makes you strong like nothing else.  I don't use it that much anymore though cos it gives me a short temper.

TOTALLY AGREE, KRIS.

It sucks because it's reasonably priced and makes me pretty strong and ready to pump iron. Unlike some other products that just give me a headache and taste like crap. I'm gona buy a bunch before the stores run out. Super pump max is pretty good too, but I didn't see beta alanine in the ingredients and I like beta alanine in my pre workouts but I gave me an awesome pump.

I hope USP fights it, but it might bring the wrath of the FDA down on the whole industry.

A worker at my local GNC said the ban as of right now only effects military bases. Not sure though.

until further notice...

Jack3d has been showing signs of causing chemically indused heat strokes in people who take the supplement, mostly in hot areas of the world. so ppl in the military take it and are outside a lot in their hot uniforms and its just not a good recipe. the research is pointing to 1,3D, so everyone who has a problem went up in arms about it and now we are seeing the effects.

and there have been cases outside of military personal... if you were wondering.

1. jack3ed (i don't know what the difference is between the orange and the green)
2. dark rage
3. neurocore
4. NO shotgun

I've never tried Jack3d but if anyone has tried it and C-4, could you please tell me which is better?
I'm currently running C-4 and I love the pump, not so much the taste, but great pump, although it gives me some serious itch problems (not sure if it's from being sensitive to stims or just a chemical reaction).

Also, it'd be cool to list a few of your favorites by effectiveness as the taste is not even a factor for me.

Beta Alanine causes it. Try Craze or Muscle Marinade. Two hottest pwo's right now imo
