    Bent the needle in my leg

    I just switched to 27G 1 1/4 needle for my quad shots. Sunday I was doing 2mL of TEST250 and struggleing a bit to plung it out. I guess I was moving it around quite a bit to get it through the small needle finally when I was done I noticed it would not come out of my leg very easy so I gave it a good yank and saw that the needle was bent at the base at about a 45 degree angle. Is 27G 1.25 not a good choice, sure goes in nice!

    yeah I use 23 guage and I find that the oil plunges out hard even when I heat it up, couldn't imagine tryin to push it through 27 G, I use 1 inch 25G for delts and used it for quads once but like the inch and a half better to get deep in the muscle, I have big legs

    27g is very nice and not painful going in but it takes forever if you can get the solution out and through the needle; also the needle bent because it is so flimsy and thin and you were movin it also.

    My wife is injecting me on the next cycle.
    She is a nurse - oncology for 14+ years.
    She refused to use anything less then a 23g.
    Said the way she injects the smaller needles can bend.
    She called me a pussy when I said I wanted a 25g and told me I am on my own.
    So I ordered 23g.

    23 gauge is only for the glutes.... You don't want to hit the glutes all the time either cause scar tissue build up. I guarantee you, you will wussy out using that monster needle anwhere else on your body just like me.

    .. its not only for the glutes.. its the size of the pin that varies

    25g 5/8" pin for me every time. Of course, I don't shoot glues (just can't bend that way too well..lol).

    any where from 23g to 25g is fine. For glutes use 1.5", for quads use 1" for deltoids use 5/8".. end of story

    Anything above 25g is to small for oil. You are lucky it didn't break off.

    I can't imagine getting an injection finished in under a half hour trying to push it thru a 27g. I personally use 23g. for every body part, usually 1.5 inch. If I am going in the delt, I usually just don't stick it all the way in.

    i have been using 23g 1" for my delts, that is the only place i shoot, I am no that big, would that size needle be ok for my quads, as i seriously need to bulk my legs up, which are smaller the the rest of my body.

    Steroids dont bulk up the site their injected into. The muscle may swell for a few days, but it wont lead to bigger muscle mass.

    Synthol is another story. But, it doesnt lead to more muscle mass, it quite unhealthily stretches the muscle fascia.

    The only compound I've ever come across that effects the site its injected, is HGH. It has been reported to have some fat burning properties on the site its injected. This is what I have found from other peoples experience on using it, not my own.

    Wow, your damn lucky that it did not break off in your leg. That would have caused a real problem. Use a bigger needle from now on.

    I used to fight trying to push it through a 25g can only imagine using a 27g. I am currently using a 22g 1 1/4 for quads no problems.
