Jason's Review



We've previously reviewed two VPX Meltdown products, both videos have received numerous dislikes, confirmation that we're doing a good job. This is our first VPX Redline review, and perhaps we shouldn't have skipped the beginner level and gone straight to Xtreme. Before you call me a pantywaist, which I invite you to do in the comments, when you dislike this video, I've sampled around 600 energy products, and at one point was adding 200mg of powdered caffeine to a glass to sweet tea. That being said, every warning on this bottle should be heeded. I drank half the bottle, which VPX recommends. Within about an hour, Redline Xtreme hit me like a case of the flu. I felt lightheaded, moderately nauseous, and my skin was irritated and itchy (specifically my ears, face and neck area). It's possible I was having a mild allergic reaction to something in VPX Redline, but I can't discredit that I felt these sensations, albeit briefly when I reviewed Meltdown, but went on to enjoy the product. The difference here, being that the energy never showed up, at least enough to overpower the negative effects.

VPX Redline is non-carbonated, and like Meltdown, it tastes pretty good. It's a mild flavor, and served chilled, it goes down pretty smoothly. This is unfortunate, since, as discussed, you should sincerely throttle your intake.

I acquired a 4-pack of Redline Xtreme at Dick's Sporting Goods for $8. $1 a serving seems like a reasonable price, assuming this works for someone, and doesn't just make everyone feel like they've contracted the T-virus. Unfortunately for me, VPX Redline is $8 for a single serving, plus the cost of an entire day of feeling like I had a hangover, which I'd say is at least another $8.

Guests's Review

So, I look up VPX products on Youtube, and there are all these cute girls with their jubblies mashed out like Xtina on "The Voice", working out, doing photo shoots and holding up the product for the camera. Some were apparently audition tapes, which made me sad for the people in the videos, they might as well have been holding up a bottle of "desperation", and wearing an "I need attention" sports bra. On second thought, the amount of cleavage visible said it all. Anyway, moral of that story, no amount of busty women in gyms explains what the heck "toothed clubmoss" is, and why it's in my drink.

Seriously, if you handed me this label, independent of any product, and asked me if it was a drink formula, or a recipe for plastic explosives, I'd have to use my lifeline to call Uncle Lefty. Things wouldn't improve a great deal if you let me read the warning label. I've read erectile dysfunction ads in magazines with fewer warnings, apparently, the only thing more dangerous than VPX REDLINE XTREME is Rogaine (which is not to be TOUCHED by women who are pregnant, or may become pregnant. Seriously, don't TOUCH IT? What's in there?!?).

Lastly, having drank a minimal serving of VPX REDLINE XTREME, I can say with some confidence, that I seriously doubt any of those women consume more than a teaspoon of this a day. If I drank a whole bottle of REDLINE XTREME, I feel confident I'd be curled up in the fetal position, shaking involuntarily, cold and sweating, until it mercifully chose to exit my body through either explosive diarrhea or projectile vomiting. VPX REDLINE XTREME makes me feel like I've taken cold medicine, not an energy drink. I experienced no positive effects. The only upside was that it tastes sweet with a mild berry flavor.

I'm only not giving this a 1 for value, because apparently purchasing them individually is usually $3, making it a worse value than buying it for $2.

VPX Redline Xtreme Triple Berry can or bottle design and textual information
This bottle is the "Limited Edition" version of VPX Redline Xtreme Triple Berry. I know it's going directly in my collector case. I have no idea how the "Unlimited Version" compares, but here's what's on this bottle, there's a checkered flag around the top, which goes along with the racing theme and race VPX Redline race car pictured in the bottom left. In the checkered flag area, "Triple Berry Artificially Flavored", then in an awkward blue rectangle, "New BCCA'S plus Electrolytes", then in a oval, that appears to be filled with berries, "VPX". Vertically oriented are the text, "Limited Edition", as previously discussed, "REDLINE" in super big letters, "Xtreme" in some script font. Also, "Ultimate Energy Rush!" Beside this, you'll find the "Drink regulate gauge", which will show you where exactly half the bottle is. They are clear to say, "Contains 2 Servings", "Drink Half Bottle Only", "One Serving 4 oz. mark", "Caution Read label before drinking". Again, on the back, "Contains 2 servings". So, to be clear, VPX Redline Xtreme contains 2 servings. Of course, they had to change the wording on the short novel about warnings, so we have to retype it.

RECOMMENDED USE: Shake well. Always begin use with one-quarter bottle (2 ounces) of REDLINE XTREME daily to assess tolerance. Never Exceed more than 4 ounces per serving or more than one bottle daily.

Well, it makes me tingle and feel hot. If that's energy, and you want energy, I recommend you buy all the VPX Redline Xtreme ever made.
Chris Marek@2012-07-24 11:58:00
I love the taste, but even the recommended serving size is too much for normal use. I have drank Redline Xtreme up to 4 at a time and have lived, but had effects tantamount to a crack or crystal meth overdose. Regular energy drinks only from then on.
Shanna@2012-05-15 13:51:26
I find it odd that this drink got a bad review on here. I've been drinking redline on and off for acouple years now and it's the best energy drink I've ever had. It tastes good and works great. I wouldn't recommend chugging it down. Instead take your time and enjoy the flavor and the gradual rush of energy you get. Response by Jason: Not sure what's odd, it made me feel like I was having heroin withdrawal. I'd find it more odd if I gave it a great review. Additionally, is there some energy drink review conspiracy, where I gave both VPX Meltdown products high marks, but secretly and inexplicably despise Redline?

I heard that just one of any redline energy drinks can easily kill you. It is loaded with all kinds of stimulents that can cause strokes. It was rated the strongest energy drink in the world and was banned in the UK due to its health risks.
