    Cool USN are their products any good?

    Hi guys, just want to ask if anyone had tried USN products. I never had the joy to try one.

    Did you had Good or bad experience?

    Apparently the are the second best selling brand.

    Thanks for any answers.

    The second best selling brand thanks to them having a huge marketing budget due to them being a wealthy South African company who get their stuff made by Glanbia in Middlesborough.

    The same place that makes Sci-Mx, PhD, ON, Vyomax and soon BSN.

    Is their stuff any good? It's ok, their formulas are decent but a lot of their success is down to marketing and supplying the re sellers very cheaply which they've just gone back on so lots of shops/gyms not happy with them all of a sudden.

    You know what Extreme, thanks for that, really like your answers...and it clears why are they no 1 in South Africa.
    There are many brands I would like to discuss: Cellucor, Warrior nutrition...etc.

    I had call from them, so just wanted to know what people think.

    Thanks for that Extreme.

    Roman, I'd put ANY Extreme Nutrition product up for comparison against any product by any company anywhere in the world with full confidence in us being as good or better.

    We're not as big as many because money is the limiting factor, I've owned the company for 12 years, I started it when studying biomedical sciences and pharmacology and sold my house to get some money to start it so Extreme has never had any big investors or corporate input into how to make us much bigger, I just do it my way and develop the best products I can based upon the science that's available and my own knowledge.

    I've always said get every supplement company owner or manager and put us on a panel at something like bodypower and lets have a Q&A session. You'll soon see who knows their onions and who's in it for the money and nothing else or it's just a job for them.

    The manager of USN used to work for Holland & Barrat as a buyer, he doesn't train, doesn't design the products and basically is just the guy pushing sales in any way he can. No fault on him, he's done a great job, but how big would Extreme be with the same advertising budget?

    ^^^^^^ Soooo true extreme that's what i always think when it comes to supplements when you look at the main supplements websites its all about pushing the product out to the public for mega bucks but like you said you have gambled your house on your company and you have the background of pharmacology behind the products. As to the Q&A session i think if it ever came to it you would probably only get few answers as they are simply all about marketing and money.

    What do you reckon their annual advertising budget would be roughly Doug?

    i think its possible if you have credibilty to mix it with the big named UK brands.
    i`m not sure how, but benetton won F1 with shumacher when they were nothing, every now and again a football team with no money behind it but have an amazingly gifted team do well.

    theres a thread on here about what we all do for a living, i reckon as a community we could come up with some decent credible ideas that dont really soley on having cash thrown at them..

    I don't know how much USN have as a marketing budget but I heard Maximuscle was something like £5 or £6 million a few years ago.
