I like TERUMO, i also have used KENDALL and they worked well! If your runing into dull needles try switching before inject ! Hopefully your not double poking !

Yeah, I had a dull Terumo this morning. Here's the thread I posted about it incase you haven't read it:
A couple of posts recommend BD, I'll have to give them a go next round.

I have never heard of BD, what does it stand for?

Only ever used Terumo
Never had any trouble with them
The 21g 1.5" aren't much fun though

BD=Becton Dickinson, not british dragon. And they are top notch needles. The needles are coated with silicon for smooth injections. I only ever use BD. Not the cheapest though.

I steal them from work. I work in a hospital and we only use the best. They are great needles.

Never had a problem with Terumo...been using them for years...are you using the same pin to inject as you are to pull from the rubber top vial?? That's a nono!! 1 injection = 2 pins!!
