    I use a 21 guage 1" pin. But if you have some fat on your glute you would probabaly want to use the 1.5" pin to make sure you are deep enough into the muscle.

    23ga! I have no idea why anyone would prefer a 21ga, 23ga works great. In fact, even 25ga would probably work well but that depends on what brand gear you plan on running.

    You could actually use either. It a matter of personal preference. The 21g will be more painful because of its larger bore, but the injection will go quicker. The 23g will won't be as painful, but the injection will take longer because of the smaller bore. Just make sure your using 1.5'ers for your glutes.

    22g 1 1/2" needle. I made the mistake and used 1" needle. Though I think I'm OK, everone on the board will tell you to use 1 1/2 for glutes.
