Ethyl Ester makes the Creatine more lipid soluble meaning it is an advanced formula that helps the creatine travel through the cell membranes more rapidly, where as your typical monohydrate does the exact opposite.
If you are running a typical monohydrate, more than likely you will need to load, however, you better be taking in mass amounts of water to flush your kidneys as you will feel it a few weeks in. You may experience some cramping in your lower back as your kidneys can not flush that amount of creatine on it's own.

That concerns me...
