Question about pinz...
Hey bro's, I have a quick question regarding which pinz to use. I have immediate access to 22 x 3/4'', 22 x 1 1/2'', and 23 x 3/4'' pinz, and then some that I already know wouldn't work. Now I know ideal is 23 x 1'' or 23 x 1 1/2'', but will what I have access to be ok? And which size would be the best? Of course I want to use the smallest guage needle, but gimmie your input. Thanks

If you have a credit card and a computer, you have acces to more than that. But if for some reason this is all you want to look at, the 22g 1 1/2" would be the best. The problem with using a larger pin over a small gauge, other than a little more painful injects, is the increase buildup of scar tissue from the bigger hole.

Yea, understandable. Why do you need such a long needle though? I know a 3/4'' pin would def. be in the muscle, and to me it seems 1 1/2'' would be too deep.

all of my friends inject with 3/4 or even 5/16s. I was going to use that, is there a problem with that size? but i wouldnt draw with that size it would be larger.

depends where u are injecting..ie, delts , glutes , bi's...

well what about glutes or quads?

23 1'....i use this for quads......23 1.5 for glutes.....

Would it be bad news to use 3/4 for glutes? even if your lean? thanks for the info thus far.

Use the 1.5" pinz that you can get, just don't stick it in all the way. You definitely want a longer pin for the glutes to get nice and deep into the muscle.
Another thing to consider is your body mass. If you are a buck-fifty with very low bf% and are 6' tall, chances are that the 1.5" pin will puncture all the way through, but I'm sure you're bigger and have nothing to worry about.

I see your point, I am pretty lean and dont weight a whole lot. what happens if its not shot deep enough? do you risk loosing some absorption?

u gots to use the 1.5 for the glute bro...
and in my opinion..i wouldnt go less than 1 inch
any where else......
no matter how lean...you want your gear to reach the muscle easy....no
opstacles caused by the fat...

22G 1 1/2 inches for the glutes and the quads.....25G 5/8 inch all other spot injects should be comfortable....inch pinz would be good for delts....but id go with the 5/8 inch
