1" 25g everywhere. sometime 1.5" for glute. You can use 23g and lower, I just use 25g because I like short esters and they minimize scar tissue with so many shots.

I have a hard time pushing it through a 25 guage needle. I couldn't imagine using 27 or 28.

I started out using 23g 1" but experienced mild bruising (especially in delts) and significant pain lasting several days even in the thighs or glutes(I know- i'm a puss! ). I switched to 25g 1" and have no pain or bruising at all! I draw with a 20 g 1" then switch to the 25g for the injection.
