why has dbol got a bad rep?

As far as I know, dianabol was the main drug used in the golden age of bb where arnold, zane, columbu and the others where at their best, and most of them are still healthy today (I think)
Today almost no one recommends a dbol cycle...why is that? Many say you cant keep what you gain on dbol, but isnt dbol just raising the testo-levels and allows the body to take up more protein, like other steroids?
Why is muscle gained with dbol supposedly harder to keep then muscle gained from testo enanthate for example?

....just wondering

    dbol is probably the greatest steroid ever bud. and imo ofcourse you can keep gains, BUT it is easier to keep gains from an injectable, and it isnt as harmfull. now stack dbol and an injectable. superb

    It's got a bad rep only from people who either don't know what they are talking about, or people who expect to gain 30lbs and keep it all every dbol only cycle.

    Dbol has a great place in bodybuilding/weightlifting, as genics says it's one of the best.

    Today almost no one recommends a dbol cycle...why is that?

    I've seen a fair few people recommend a d-bol cycle mate.

    I would much prefer to do an injectable cycle personally, I don't really like any orals these days.

    But lots of people do like d-bol.

    I cannot believe no one has mentioned the back pumps and the inabilty to do any leg or back work when running dbol.

    I always try em but bail 2 weeks in because of back pain.

    Shame though coz when I was younger I could take these without problems

    dbol's great but it does fill you up with a lot of water so you look big, but smooth as well.
    its good to combine it with something else because it kicks in fast.

    I didn't realise it had a bad rep, just thought some people liked it and some people prefer to use something else. I'll soon find out how I will like it, runing my first cycle in 3 weeks time.

    it works but its harsh on your kidneys & liver, plus i hate bloating up 15lbs overnight only to lose it all when i come off so i never touch it anymore

    Maybe you can handle yourself one of them First Class tickets to the resurrection,So long, Mel, Have a good trip

    i'm aware that some people feel dbol (along with all orals) is inferior to injectibles such as test, deca and tren, but personally i loved the dbol, great size and strength gains, the drawbacks were bloat, high blood pressure and painful pumps, but these went away post cycle, maybe its just me, or maybe its the fact i ran test with it, but i managed to keep most of my gains in size from the dbol, however i did lose a fair bit of strength when i came off which was a little disappointing, but expected, i will be running dbol again and am looking forward to doing so

    the bloat isnt gains its just water cramed into your muscles for the brief period you cycle dbol

    Well, cant most of the bloat be prevented with an anti-e like nolva, or a e-blocker like arimidex?
    So if you use diana along with ari the entire cycle, you will have less pounds gained, but those pounds will be hard muscle?

    yes but one of the reasons dbol works so well is because of the stored water in the muscles
