    The difference between the two is almost non existent... Most say that Tetst E will have you retain a bit less water and the enanthate version contains a bit more of the active ingredient per mg.... I use cyp and LOVE it... and will continue to use it as my test base for ALL my cycles.

    You will not notice the difference between the two, for the most part!

    Almost no difference, however there is a significant lower risk of alergic reaction from enanthate but its also very low risk with cypionate as well. Thats the primary reason for both being available, alergic to one, can do the other.

    What kind of alergic reaction ? I was aware of side effects such as acne etc but when you say alergic reaction do you mean something more than just the expected side effects ?

    good post

    bump, i have been looking all over this place for some one to tell which one to use (cyp) or (enth) thank you. I'll use (cyp) for a base and i'll keep looking as to what to stack it with. bump again.

    My compounded Cyp proudly states that it "Does not contain Gossypol" on the label. Whatever the hell that is. No allergic reactions here, though!

    I love em both! I switch them for my base each cycle! But, yeah, whichever you can get is right on! Fortunately, I can get both

    Reputed differences between them are probably 90% urban legend / old wives' tales. You won't notice the half life difference if you are shooting twice a week. The enanth will theoretically deliver marginally more free test due to the lower molecular weight of the ester, per mg of drug, but not enough to notice, I am sure. I have never heard of an allergic reaction to either one, but I am all ears.
