After being backordered, I just received my order of Maximum Impact. It has changed and is horrible! Does anyone know what happened? It doesn't seem to work anymore. I feel like I just threw my money away.
(I used to really enjoy the product to help me take the "larger boys". If this keeps up, any recommended alternatives?)

PJ said on Fri, 4 Oct 2013 at 20:48...

How has it changed, hairydc? you mean the formula? I only saw it once before at a party so I am no expert there.

The Rush Hour said on Fri, 4 Oct 2013 at 22:53...

No idea never used that!

PJ said on Sat, 5 Oct 2013 at 07:55...

All I know is a distant memory....I remember being at a wild party and some guy dressed up in a clone sort of way (oh! the memories) he was doing something with a rag. I assume he was going to clean something :-) It is not a nitrite, it is chloride something.

hairydc said on Sat, 5 Oct 2013 at 16:21...

Yep. The formula changed. The smell is horrendous and it just doesn't work like it's supposed to. At all! Someone else in Atlanta reported the same. I ordered from NY.

What does it say on the can?

King of All Hobbies said on Sun, 6 Oct 2013 at 06:31...

Maximum Impact Spray, Black Jack and Thunderbolt are all (were?) made from Ethyl Chloride. If it says chloroethane its is the same. It has nothing whatsoever to do with nitrite poppers and is used to treat sport injuries. Having said that there are people who use it in a similar way of course...OP's remark about "larger boys" is spot on! It is a heavy duty sort of thing...watch out

>What does it say on the can?

Max Impact?

fasty said on Sun, 6 Oct 2013 at 23:00...

Yeah, Ethyl Chloride, quite a few reports of permanent brain damage or death if I remember correctly.
Not at all the same as nitrite poppers.
Avoid!

bdsmphl said on Tue, 8 Oct 2013 at 23:00...

I bought some last night at G Books in DC...it's horrible. The new and old cans are exactly the same but the new product smells horrible and had no effect.

It had been out of stock for about 2 months. The clerk told me back in July that the chemical was no longer available and they were reformulating it. Well they did, even though the contents still list only "chloroethane" but it's not the same product.

fist6 said on Tue, 15 Oct 2013 at 18:31...

any experience/ advice with an alternative

thanks

PJ said on Wed, 16 Oct 2013 at 11:30...

Maybe you should heed the advice given by fatsy.

Gaudy said on Tue, 22 Oct 2013 at 02:21...

The companies are using linseed oil as a preservative, I hear... hence the sticky residue and the small... and there is definitely less impact in poppers anymore...

PJ said on Thu, 24 Oct 2013 at 12:18...

"and the small"...what? I am intrigued! Do you mean poppers in general or this ethyl product please. I have heard of linseed oil but only for lubricating cricket bats.

Show me the way to Amarillo said on Fri, 25 Oct 2013 at 06:05...

linseed always there (not new) Poppers are not changed same formula mostly! excludes cyclohexyl and isoporopyl

Tex said on Fri, 8 Nov 2013 at 22:39...

their is an ethyl spray called hardware anyone had that??

SPDOLVR said on Sun, 10 Nov 2013 at 06:10...

Maximum Impact was definitely changed....returned my order for a refund as soon as i tried it. black-jack isn't bad and hardware are good alternatives if you can find them.

lahairyhole said on Tue, 10 Dec 2013 at 07:49...

FDA has everything to do with the changes in MAximun Impact and are recalling some of the recent, cause as hairydc said...or someone did...its not longer how it use to be

fuc stick said on Thu, 9 Jan 2014 at 05:54...

New formula is awful. could not give the stuff away. avoid the product aat all cost

Fister said on Sat, 18 Jan 2014 at 20:14...

Yes this product is not the same. Do not waste your money.

bruno said on Tue, 21 Jan 2014 at 06:26...

So many conflicting messages. Is there an online source for the old reliable poppers?

finally said on Wed, 29 Jan 2014 at 20:32...

glad to see that others who are experienced with Max feel the same..
I have ordered from many sources on line and locally but all are worthless.
It makes no sense to me as there should only be one ingredient as stated in the can.. Ethyl Chloride is used in medical settings and has a distinct smell which used to be in Max... I have found black jack and hardware a few months ago which were great... but i have not been able to locate any more..
Anyone with alternatives??

Armale2001 said on Thu, 6 Feb 2014 at 23:15...

I'd love to hear some alternatives too. The only thing I can find in stock is Max Impact. Not a big shocker there since it is worthless now.

Bear said on Fri, 4 Apr 2014 at 02:54...

So glad to stumble on this posting - I thought I was the only one that noticed how awful Max Impact got around October last year - I thought maybe it was just the batch from the store I buy them from, but it looks like they did change, for the worse!! Those looking for a better alternative look for "Black Max" it's great. They carry it at the shop I go to so I'm not sure where to tell you to find it, I haven't found it online yet.

TickleMyFancy808 said on Sun, 13 Apr 2014 at 03:30...

Hi guys. I think, much like some automotive spray products that have ether as a main ingredient, I believe the manufacturers of ethyl chloride products have been mandated to add a "deterrent" to those punks who might misuse it recreationally. The smell is pretty bad, but seems to work as well as ever. I note that some would disagree with me on that latter point.
I was lucky enough to find a shop here who had a case of the black max in stock but that has since been depleted and the owner reports he hasn't been able to find it. Likely if it returns to the market it will also be of a new deterrent enabled formula. I'm guessing.
Keeping fingers crossed cuz nothing clears the blockage and increases the capacity of my pipes like ethyl chloride.
Aloha.

TP said on Thu, 24 Apr 2014 at 03:20...

everyone is exactly on. The new maxx is terrible. Doesn't this show how sneakly Washington regulators are. Anyone know how we can order original formula in any brand from a reputable website. I am sure maxx will go out of business because of the forced change, once again thanks to the feds.Next they will take the alcohol out of drinking. Work toward getting a decent brand out available to us. They can't control international sales., or can they?

Frustrated said on Thu, 8 May 2014 at 11:53...

I am so frustrated at how hard it is to find maximum impact or good poppers in the Philadelphia area anymore. I need advice on where to buy online or shop local.

Disappointed said on Thu, 24 Jul 2014 at 18:42...

Well, having been a user of Maximum Impact for many year, I, like all the rest, have been so disappointed since the Fall of last year. There was a complete lack of it for several months, and then when it came back it had changed dramatically. It does absolutely nothing now... completely useless. It is so frustrating. And I have to say the poppers have been affected almost as badly. The head rush that one used get is all but gone out of both of these products. Don't waste your money on Maximum Impact. As for the poppers, I've tried many brands since October of last year and still haven't found one even close to what they used to be.

FunGuy said on Tue, 7 Oct 2014 at 20:38...

I found that the Black Max is closer to the old formulation of Maximum Impact. I found it on Amazon. I had to do a search for "Black Max Ethyl" on Amazon to find it

G said on Thu, 11 Dec 2014 at 01:50...

I have seen some adds for Max Impact to be ethyl chloride. Has anyone tried it?

FunGuy said on Sun, 28 Dec 2014 at 19:03...

I found Black Max which is like the old Maximum Impact at Poppers To Go

PopperNut said on Sat, 3 Jan 2015 at 17:36...

The new Maximum Impact out there sucks!
Current favorites: U4EA , Red Czech, and Hardware. They are standard 4.6 oz size.
Just received a can of Maximum Black (not to be confused with Black Max) which looks a lot like it came from the makers of Maximum Impact. Too lazy to see if they are from same manufacturer just now. Looking forward to trying them soon!

Nick said on Tue, 20 Jan 2015 at 23:13...

Im a distributor for Maximum Black and NO it is not the same manufacturer as Impact. It still contains Ethel Chloride.

Disappointed said on Wed, 28 Jan 2015 at 17:33...

Hi,
I've just ordered a can of the Black Max. Having been a user of Maximum Impact for many years, I will be eager to see if this is like Impact used to be. Currently the Impact is still useless. I try a can now and then, just to see if they have modified anything. So far, nothing. The pricing is still the same, however. About 20/can. Outrageous when you consider it does absolutely nothing.

I will update once the Black Max has arrived and I have tried it to alert other users.

Disappointed said on Mon, 2 Feb 2015 at 21:12...

Ok, the Black Max arrived today. The bottle says it contains Ethyl Chloride(chloroethane) which used to be the ingredient in Maximum Impact, and which Maximum Impact still says they contain. I will test tonight and let everyone know tomorrow now this one compares with the old MI and the new MI.

Fingers Crossed!!!

Disappointed said on Tue, 3 Feb 2015 at 14:51...

OK, guys. I tried out the Black Max last night. It was a complete bust, just like the Maximum Impact. Luckily I only ordered 1 bottle for testing purposes. No effect at all. The can labeling says it contains Ethyl Chloride, but if it does, it has to be so minuscule a part as to be completely useless. Don't waste your money. So far, no viable alternative. And again, the cost was 20/can plus 3.99 shipping. Rip Off!!!!!

Disappointed Still....

OICU812 said on Tue, 10 Feb 2015 at 23:16...

@Nick
Okay, where can your product be ordered from????

Nick said on Wed, 18 Feb 2015 at 03:06...

Maximum Black Ethyl Cloride spray is available on eBa

Disappointed said on Fri, 13 Mar 2015 at 18:02...

Hi again,
Well, I'm familiar with the Maximum Black available on eBay. When the store that used to carry to real MI started to have problems getting it, they brought this one in, and this was BEFORE the formula change. I didn't think much of this brand even then. Not the same, a bit weaker. And I would be very skeptical that this manufacturer has not be affected in the same fashion as MI. I think you'll be wasting your money. On eBay, this is 16.95 plus 7.95 shipping and handling so basically 25 dollars/can. That's a lot to pay for something which is highly likely to be bogus anyway. Let the buyer beware! is probably a good adage to remember in this case.

I have stopped trying to find a good alternative. I don't believe there is one available any longer.

Disappointed Still....

Hugh said on Fri, 20 Mar 2015 at 15:43...

Hey guys so I've found that no poppers have hit the spot like they used to. I usually used jungle juice platinum and it was great but now I barely get any rush at all if even. I've tried different brands and it's all the same the only one that has come close to what it used to feel like was locker room (British white, Amsterdam, Rush do nothing for me) however there is one brand of popper I've encountered a couple of times that is AMAZING!! but it's always on a labeless bottle it's just your typical small brown bottle with the black top but has no name no label nothing. The only thing I've seen them all have is they all have the phrase "The original" engraved into the cap at the top but that is it. I've tried looking for it but haven't been successful in shops or online. Has anybody seen these? Does anybody know where to purchase them?

Hey said on Sun, 22 Mar 2015 at 13:24...

How do you use Maximum Impact? Im used to just huffing. This white spray liquid.

Disappointed said on Wed, 1 Apr 2015 at 19:40...

Hi Hugh,

Well, I've had the same experience with poppers not being what they used to be. I have tried a large number and nothing seems to work anymore. I have not seen the brand that you're describing. Our stores here only carry the "named" brands.. all of those you mentioned with labels and more, but honestly, they are all the vary same and very poor. It could be that you found some "homemade" ones... it's quite dangerous to make yourself but it is possible.

Will keep a lookout for what you're describing....

Disappointed

Disappointed said on Wed, 1 Apr 2015 at 19:41...

Hi Hey,

Yes, that's the general procedure....but with the change in the MI formula, it does little more now than smell funny.. no head rush, no nothing.. I have noticed that it made me cough more for several days with the new formula... I don't use the crap anylonger as it's all fake, expensive, and virtually worthless...

Disappointing said on Sun, 5 Apr 2015 at 22:21...

Yes
Coughed a ton
Trouble breathing
Had to use inhaler

Don't use them anymore

Fistingmike said on Tue, 28 Apr 2015 at 22:10...

I bought Maximum Impact at Condom Sense in Dallas just this past Saturday and it was perfectly fine. I got off big time on it.

Xinyu said on Fri, 29 May 2015 at 03:52...

can anyone suggest a good alternative? I need it when i bottom.

The butthunter said on Thu, 4 Jun 2015 at 08:45...

I do not understand why poppers now last for long is no longer the same as before you spend 25 dollars for nothing a week and it gets as old and really do not understand it seems that if a scam ... anyone here know which brand is good and last long time ... I like the poppers Aguiar could suggest one good quality

Asbbslut said on Sun, 21 Jun 2015 at 06:27...

ok, I'm going to have to agree with fistingmike regarding Maximum Impact, which are not poppers for those of you who have never had them. I'm reading where they do nothing, but I've bought a few cans over the past several months and they certainly feel like the real deal, and they definitely do something. When guys say they do nothing, do you really mean 'nothing'...like you are inhaling just air, OR are you saying that they just aren't as strong.?

And unless you are in your late 40s or older, you've never had real poppers. It's been all imitation since then.

Disappointed said on Wed, 22 Jul 2015 at 19:02...

Hi Asbbslut!

Indeed, I'm old enough to remember the real poppers. Those were the days! Of course it was real amyl nitrate back in the day. Now all we have is fake crap. I even tried ordering from the UK, and still got crap. Hardly worth even trying now.

As for MI, I buy a can now and then, just to see if they've changed the formula any. Some guys say they've found some good ones. It could be leftovers from the old ones, and they got lucky. Here, everything is bogus so far. Not a decent can in the lot. And the price here just went up to 25/can. People are not buying it like they used to so they are raising the price for the ones who still do to make up for their loss... oh well, a fool is born every minute:-)

Still Disappointed

Angry gay man lol said on Sat, 15 Aug 2015 at 23:15...

Holy hell i thought I became immune to it I look like a drug addict breathing on my cloth trying to get the high got to the point where I was almost drinking it so now I'm reading this now I know I've been wasting my money I should take every single one of the cans back and get all my money back for selling a product that doesn't have the ingredients it once had to still Says on the spray bottle the old ingredients this truly sucks

chase said on Mon, 24 Aug 2015 at 02:56...

poppers are pot luck....sometime you are lucky enought to get a good bottle with a lot of zing and sometimes you get a dud with know zing.....the other factor is overtime your brain adapts to poppers so it will eventually begin to loose its pop....

Tried it..loved it. said on Sun, 11 Oct 2015 at 15:21...

I had maximum impact the other day and I seriously fell in love.. the high was outrageous and I hope I can buy some more soon but I don't know any stores near me and I don't want to wait... Maximum Impact is great! Maybe we just got some good bottles.

jaggerstone said on Tue, 13 Oct 2015 at 22:21...

Yep, they added garlic oil or something to Max Impact - it leaves a terrible taste and does not work as well. Ordered some Czech Red but Balckjac came instead. It was OK but not as good as the original Max Impact. I really have to pace myself with Max Impact - I always used with regular gold poppers. It would be great to find a source of regular USP ethyl chloride

Disappointed said on Tue, 10 Nov 2015 at 19:44...

Well, I saw a new brand at the local Adult Bookstore here in Raleigh. It was called "Jolt". Alas, the name was a complete misnomer, well, except for the price. It was $25/can and as usual, a bust. It should've been called "Filch"... I can remember when a single can of this would last me several weeks, and now, even two or three cans at the same time does next to nothing. I find the same thing to be true with poppers. All of the "umph" has been removed from them. Not even a glimmer of the head rush one used to get. And I've tried them all... Amsterdam, Rush, Gold Rush, Jungle Juice, Jungle Juice Black, Jungle Juice Premium... and an assorted array of other brands... all fakes...

Lexffcub said on Mon, 4 Jan 2016 at 03:01...

Best thread ever! !!

Squit42 said on Thu, 28 Jan 2016 at 03:21...

Maximum Impact is death in a can. My husband is addicted to that outrageously priced product and he is a mess. He doesn't even do it for sex, but just huffs it. The aerosol needs to be banned. It leads to huffing Computer Duster...It leads to Death.

dook said on Tue, 9 Feb 2016 at 13:28...

Squit42 - Tks for sharing.

Bttm4all said on Sun, 14 Feb 2016 at 22:37...

Love this thread. Yes Max impact has changed. Just get on the the meth bandwagon. What's the worst that could happen?

Josh said on Wed, 2 Mar 2016 at 21:42...

Hey Guys,
I love using poppers... I would buy them in the store near my house but he recently closed down, I was looking where I can buy them online and I came across a site called www.Wupli.com
They are much cheaper than all the other sites and they offer flat rate shipping anywhere in the US. It arrived fast and discrete, the stuff was fresh and strong! I was extremely happy and will for sure order from them agin.

Just figured I would let everyone know.

JORDINI said on Sat, 5 Mar 2016 at 08:13...

Where should I store my maximum impact to make it last longer is the freezer a proper place that's where a friend of mine keeps his liquid jungle juice rush ect.

ShotaconSissy89 said on Wed, 18 May 2016 at 04:22...

Couldn't you just buy pure ethyl chloride UPS (pharma grade) and cut the BS of additives etc. I swore I saw a bottle of generic ethyl chloride for sale on amazon. It cant be that hard to come by...every hospital n sports medicine place has it to quickly cool off wounds. All I wonder is...is Ethyl Chloride the ONLY ingredient don't wanna poison self lol.

FeedMeDaddy said on Thu, 19 May 2016 at 14:17...

I've been using Maximum Impact for years. I do
miss the high of Blackjack which was more of a
sexy high. Recently tried the Jungle Juice formula
and it wasn't very good. I find a combo of Maximum
and sniffing the brown bottle gets me really horned
up! Especially when a Daddy is feeding them to me!

Horndog said on Fri, 17 Jun 2016 at 21:04...

Would someone explain to me what using Blackjack or the real Max Impact etc. is like? I really get off on poppers, and have been curious about Blackjack erc. for a long time. Is it the same? Heightened arousal sensation and intensified orgasm? What's it like? Compare to poppers.

Duardo said on Thu, 14 Jul 2016 at 10:35...

Try Bolt. I noticed the change on MI and decided to try Bolt. Its much better.

Play safe and don't go crazy with it. It's not a nitrate like poppers are.

Anyone notice that someone is addicted or died in every thread here? Interesting.

Use it and die said on Sat, 16 Jul 2016 at 05:28...

My partner died June 28th from using it. It's called Sudden Sniffing Death.

IB4Bama said on Mon, 1 Aug 2016 at 18:25...

You would think there would be a black market available for the old formula. If there is one i haven't found it.

Moepaco said on Wed, 10 Aug 2016 at 04:04...

So is it any good anymore or what?

Gaynonymous said on Tue, 8 Nov 2016 at 02:10...

When I tried Max Impact I loved it, but I have heard of sudden sniffing death which makes me weary of continuing to use it. I also looked at the ingredients on the bottle and found that there were carcinogens (cancer causing agents) inside it, which also made me nervous. Does anyone know if alternatives like Bolt are prone to the same dangers? I loved the way it felt but I also enjoy being alive...

sflthrcub said on Mon, 28 Nov 2016 at 18:51...

Have read through all of the posts re: Maximum Impact. Yes the product changed. It appears they are using some sort of petroleum product in it which has a off odor. Not sure what it is. I found that if you want the older 4.6 ounce cans the only ones out there are the Jim Diamond's U4ea and the PWD Bolt. Black Jack and Thunderbolt are available in the 4 oz cans. All of theses brands seem to be ok and don't have that petroleum off smell.
As many have previously said ethyl chloride is not poppers.

Pharmaceutically it is an anesthetic and prolonged or habitual use can lead to neurotoxicity or neural damage. I've read that the effects will go away after a period of time, but other medical papers on it's toxicity aren't as clear. Second issue is one of its anesthesia effects. Heavy use or breathing in too high of a concentration can render you unconscious with possible lethal consequences. Another side effect is that when you go out you may vomit all over and your bowels and bladder may release with decidedly messy consequences. If you inhale/aspirate your vomit you could also suffocate. As an anesthesia while you do get "high" or euphoric, it also may deaden your sexual arousal as apposed to poppers (nitrate inhalants). Be careful and used in a well ventilated area.

notinahurrytodie said on Sun, 18 Dec 2016 at 22:04...

I use poppers Nitrate based poppers. Was seriously curious about Maximum impact and I showed up to a hook up where I witnessed a beautiful black stud built like a god, take a hit of maximum impact and he experienced a siezure like episode and he had two of them relating to his immediate inhalation. I believe he will die from his use if he doesn't stop. I love my community of men and I want us to have fun, but after burying 47 friends from AIDS I refuse to not ask ouselves WTF are we doing. These are extroadinarily dangerous. Please dont use them .I am not judging just scared I will lose more friends and this data is in. They are not worth the dangerous risk.

silence said on Fri, 24 Mar 2017 at 23:53...

My partner was using maximum impact and poppers for years before i met him. We used them during sex and I was worried he used too many, he would basically pass out. Then about three years into our relationship I discovered him in the bathtub using them. I thought he was getting ready to play with someone else, he was not. He did them by himself. He hurt himself many times, hot water burns, scrapes, cuts, I heard him fall in the next room, had to come in and pull the soaked cloth out of his clenched teeth. I begged and threatened and tried to get him to stop. I thought he did, more than once. We stopped using it together at all. Twice after that he showed up with slurred speech for several days, it was aphasia. He came out of it both times. I was so angry. I thought we were doing well, he said he was seeing a therapist. One night recently he didn't come home. He was found dead in a no-tell motel, he had been using inhalants. Dead. This addiction went on for more than the decade I knew him. He. Is Now. Dead.

Ricky said on Mon, 27 Mar 2017 at 17:58...

So surely they have put men on the moon I know there must be a way to find the old time "poppers" that really gave a high. Where could one find those? Surely a blackmarket on these somewhere

Brewskeey said on Thu, 1 Jun 2017 at 03:12...

found the real stuff, pure Ethyl Chloride from Amsterdam and ordered it. hoping it takes me all the way since i'm so close to getting the fist now. anyway it's still out there just have to spend the money and the time to find it.

Brewskeey said on Thu, 1 Jun 2017 at 04:13...

Squit42 give your fuckin husband a break, this hell hole of a world is hard enough to deal with. Just be glad you have him. everyone needs at least one or two vices.

LarryMN said on Mon, 17 Jul 2017 at 05:03...

Is that the key ?? Only get the 4.6 oz ?
The 4 oz ones are fake !?!?

Not sure about the min amount yet here it is.

dont worry the name is not the same. It is the stuff.

NYNJGuy said on Thu, 9 Nov 2017 at 03:20...

Buy Maximum Impact at Maximumspray.com. it does work, if you do not get any type of hard buzz or hit from it, you have developed a tolerance for it and it is no good to you. For me, it's great only because I just started using it for the past six months.
