    22 gauge, not so bad

    I used a 22 gauge to draw out my required amount of 1.5cc's of test ent and 1cc of equipoise , and then I transported over to a brand new syringe that was 22 gauge. This needle looked fucking HUGE, but I sucked it up and took it very slow. I hit the designated area in the glutes, aspirated and started to descend until it was all the way in the muscle. My ass is a little sore, but in a good way I guess. Just thought I would share that if the needle looks intimidating than just suck it up and go with it, you are stronger than a needle!!!!

    My buddy is using 22 gauge, and I told him he was one brave soul. But he is a deca fanatic, so that would explain that.
    22 gauger, that is a nail compaired to what I shoot.

    22 isnt so bad..looks like it will hurt more than it does..anything in a lower gauage however, watch out. That is like sticking a nail in your ass!

    yea Im using a 22 now Ive never used anything smaller and personaly I have this crazy fear of the needle breaking off, so Im almost scared to use anything smaller (kinda silly but hey it makes me feel better)

    Standards are 23g 1.5" for glutes, and 25g (or 24g) 1" for quads & delts.

    Use the smallest gauge needle you can to avoid scar tissue / pain.

    You have to use a larger gauge for longer needles; the flow rate depends on length & diameter. A 25g 1.5" needle would take forever to push oil through!

    When I started all I had available were 18g needles and I thought "Damn, that wasn't too bad." I looked at one the other day and thought "Holy shit, that's a small pipe!"

    i agree with ajax, i always use a 22 gauge enven for shoulder and tri shots, its a little hard to get the pin through the shoulder, i usually have to pinch the skin, 25 for winny though, never had it clog, screw drinkng it, you start hitting your tris and bis and youll understand why, like rocks
