i use seperate pins for drawing ans shooting so no matter what the pin going in me is sharp as can be.

I do the same, but I got these one pins, and I swear I could only use them once, they got so dull, I would have to have someone jump on it to get it in...I have been using the terumo and like them

started thinking about the differences the other day when a friend brought it up. i think terumo slide in a lot smoother than B-D, but its not that big of a deal.

pins are pins

Not all pins are maid equal...I like how smooth the terum slide in, and they last longer

I know, but when done safe and clean..it okay, I use them until you have to jump on them to get them in. and it only goes in me and I make sure everything is clean..never had a prob...I dont think I have ever used one more that 7 or 8 times...maybe i can break that record..lol
PS dont try this at home...

wouldn't it actually be more trouble to clean the pin than to just get another one.....i mean you can get a syringe and pin for like twenty cents....i dont think that is very wise to use pins more than once.....i just dont think that reusing a pin outweighs the alternative of spending twenty cents on another one...JMO
and for the real question, i like terumo...i used bd my first cycle, and i thought that was fine....for my next i tried terumo and have never switched back....they just seem sharper and to slide in easier to me

good point and I agree with you 100% but were I live it cost like 5$ per pin so it gets very costly to keep using new ones..not that I have this online source and its like really cheap I will prob use a new one everytime...

what do you mean they stay sharp for a long time? are you not throwing them away each time you use them? you sound like some sort of crank who keeps them in a cupboard and keeps testing the sharpness out of the interests of science lol use them once, throw them out!

To me B-D all the way everyday...
They feel sharper and better made to me...

I've used both, and haven't noticed much of a difference personally. However, that is not the real issue of this thread....
The fact that you are reusing pins is not smart bro. that point has been clearly made by the others who have given thier input here, so now I'm concerned for your mental health as well. Paying $5 a pin is enough to drive anyone into a deep depression or a manic hysteria, depending on your mood at the time. Where do you live that it costs $5 for 1 pin?

Useing the needle more than once is a bad idea bro you say the pinz cost $5 each **** i cant see that being true.

I can tell you from my own dumb experience If you re-use the pins you risk infecting yourself and your gear with bacteria. Not a good thing. 4 weeks on anti-biotics and one ugly skin-rash was enough for me. Always use a new needle & Syringe.
