    Prop vs. Test-e

    I know that people say test is test, but I was wondering if, considering the cycle as a whole, a shorter ester would produce better results. For example, generally people say with longer esters like enanthate or cyp kick in at week 4. So if you're doing a 12 week cycle, your test is working for about 7-8 of those weeks. But on the other hand a short ester like prop kicks in much sooner, so doing a 12 weeker with it should have more time where the test is in full effect, and in theory better gains. Is this true? Or does the fact that the longer ester continues to work after week 12 adjust for this difference?

    Ml for ml prop contains slightly more hormone.

    The longer esters by nature do provide a built in taper up and taper down.

    Your theory sounds plausable. However, if there is indeed a difference I imagine it is slight.

    Frontload with the prop, that settles the problem. I can go a few weeks with frequent injections, but after that I hate it, I couldn't imagine 12 weeks of prop. I like Enan and Cyp the best, I only use prop to frontload

    he said it. ed injections do become too much. i am probably gonna throw some test e in soon to get out of ed injections. and then throw it back in at the end of my cycle.

    so do people generally think that it is best to jump start with prop for the first few weeks, but eventually switch over to a longer ester like test-e?

    Start with both prop and test e day one and stop the prop after 4 weeks.

    Depends on what your goals are, for me I have always preferred Prop over Enth. simply because blood levels stay at a more constant rate, thereby reducing side effects such as ...bloating, acne, etc.

    Prop definitely gets in and starts working more quickly...usually for me its about day 5 or 6 that I start to notice it. I love it in my cutting cycles, and I can handle the daily injections up until about week 10 or 12, anymore than that and i get burned out.
