yes and no. EQ is a better cutting drug in that it doesn't cause you to retain as much water as deca does. On the other hand, EQ stimulates the hell out of the appetite, making it hard to restrict calories. Deca has more sides effects than EQ, i.e. progesterone related gyno and HPTA suppression that can take a while to regain, which in turn can cause you to lose the gains and get gyno. Deca also causes deca dick, so the addition of test is a must. Deca also drastically lowers sperm count (not that its a bad thing so to speak). I always go for EQ over deca, but many prefer deca. I can run 600mg/eq/week with no sides, but 600mg/deca/week and I'll get gyno and won't be able to bust a nut. I also like the increase in red blood cell count that EQ gives you, a lot better pumps and vascularity
. I gained 11lbs. on a winny/eq cycle earlier this year.
