    Are 1 1/2" pins too long?

    Ive always used 1" pins but I got a bunch of 1 1/2" pins also. Are these too long for the quads? They look long as hell to me!!

    I use those for everthing. That way I dont have to push the entire needle into the flesh. THat way, if the needle snaps, there will hopefully be something still sticking out that I can grab.

    Its not hard at all!

    Bump. 1.5's are great for quads and glutes. I usually use 1" for delts and tri's. You can also get away with 1" for quads and glute, depending on BF.

    If you use needles that can snap off change your brand... I mean change now.

    any good pin can snap....a long 1.5 incher inserted about 1.3 inches or so can easily snap if you make a wrong move, especially shooting your own glutes without help

    I use 1.5 for quads and gluts 1 for bi and delts. I like the 1.5 for my quads because they are large and thick. I like to know it's getting deep enough into the muscle.

    They will not break. Take one and try to break it... I will wait until it is broken for you to come back on... After you bend two or three of them and come to the conclusion that it would be a freak accident like a lightning strike, you can come back and state your new opinion.

    I Agree Mesomorphyl... I've bent them but don't see how they could break. You have to bend them back and forth over and over to get them to break. I've had the needle detach from the syringe while injecting but that's different.

    RUballs you have a pm. Also I think a pin could break, but again freak accident or one in a million... I say this as I have given and seen other give thousands of shots(med field) and not one did we ever not plunge all the way to the canula. That is why you have different size needles... so you know exactly how deep they are going. Most that say it can break have not seen it but heard from a friend of a friend type of urban legend thing.

    Agreed. I''ve always had my doubts about needles breaking as frequently as people suspect. I guess if you are injecting a 1.5 inch 25 or higher gauge into your arse then maybe due to contorsion and shiat but a 22 or 23 guage into the arse...that seems very very unlikely....as you wrote "it would be a freak accident like a lightning strike."

    If I only have 1 1\2 available and needed to hit somewhere where it's too big, I take the cover off and cut some of it off and put it back on so only an inch or so is uncovered. Just my .2
