1 Inch Pins for Glute Injections
Are 1 inch pins long enough for glute injections? Or do I need 1 1/2's. I do not have an excessive amount of fat in the area.

Hey bro, you can use 1 inch, however you may have some oil leakage because remember, it is a intramuscular injection. If you don't get deep enough into the muscle, some oil may leak out. Plus even though you say you don't have much fat, there is still some and 1/4 inch of fat is a 1/4 of an inch lost on the neddle. My suggestion is to go with a 1 1/2 inch pin. Better to be safe than sorry.

What are you using?, For prop or fina I would think it would be okay, all others 1.5"

Try it, if oil leaks out use them on your delts or get new 1.5in pinz.

i've been using 23g, 1 inch in my glutes for 2 weeks (3 injetcs so far) and nothing leaks back out and i have a small but mostly muscular ass, so I believe its plenty (I hope so!) - I am sure to go all the way in tho every time so the full 1 inch pin gets buried
if i was to use a 1.5 i wouldnt go all the way in anyway, so i dont think im gonna switch

Ive been using 1 inch pins the whole time Ive been on AS for my glutes,and have
never had a problem with oil leakage you can feel the pin hit the muscle at least
I can thats when I know Iam straight.
