Did anybody use Overdrive? If yes could anybody give me a feed back?
I use Overdrive. I'm not really sure what you're looking for in feedback...
Is it good? Absolutely. I wouldn't use it if I didn't know it was.
The caveat is that it really only shines when you combine it with another bloom booster like Big Bud. Overdrive works to push the growth and maturation of the buds in the final stages of flowering. It seems to actually slow the maturation just slightly to get you a little more time to bulk up.
But it doesn't make a lot of difference if you don't already have some pretty big buds. So it's not cost-effective without Big Bud imho.
I actually use the Bud Blood-Big Bud-Overdrive trio. Bud Blood gets them into flowering quicker and it really seems to stimulate some extra budding sites, Big Bud of course does most of the bulking up through flowering, and then Overdrive gets that little bit extra at the end.
I would say that if you're looking for one thing, get Big Bud. Leave the rest for later. Oh, and they're replacing Bud Blood with Bud Ignitor so keep that in mind if you can't find Bud Blood.
Here's what I do on an 8 week cycle on top of base nutrients..
Bud Ignitor/Bud Blood - Week 1
Big Bud - Weeks 2-4
Overdrive - Weeks 5-6
Bud Candy - Weeks 2-6
Water Only Flush - Weeks 7-8
As Killerm8er pointed out, you should see significant weight gain in the final weeks, which Overdrive will help.
I like my results.. :jointsmile:
