    5/8 Pin Ok for Delts?

    I started using a 5/8's pin for my shoulders, then I decided to change it up and use a 1" to make sure I got it deep enough. I noticed I started getting slight swelling in the inject site, that would go away after a few days, But I never had swelling with the 5/8's pins. Im using 1 cc of test 2x a week rotating shoulders. Think I'm ok going back to 5/8's?

    I use 1", but I have pretty good size delts. 5/8" should be fine.

    ^^ agreed. 5/8" is ok if your delts are smaller, but make sure you're going all the way into the muscle bro. I use 1" as well and it works for me. Do you inject in any other sites?

    Thanks for the fast response big, I figured 5/8's should be ok, Mine are a good size as well nothing crazy tho. 5'9" 190+ Maybe it was in my head but I always thought I was gonna hit something with the 1", it always seemed to hurt more too, the 5/8's I feel nothing really, except after I start injecting the test, or shortly after. Just wasn't a fan of the swelling I was getting after the inject, I only seemed to happen since I started using the 1"s. I pined myself like a week ago and my shoulder instantly grew like a nice little bump while I was 1/2 way in with the pin, I was thinking "hmmm thats new, that can't be good lol"

    If it works for you,,then by no means change it. I typically never go less than 1"

    the 1in and 5/8's are both 23g. I just used the 5/8's again went in no problem, seems a little easier then the 1in for shoulders. No swelling. My only concern was that I was getting deep enough with the 5/8's.

    If there is no lump on the 5/8" then you're fine. I have actually started to get a little swelling on my delts with my 22g 1". I usually use 25g 1" but bought the wrong ones. If you try using the 1" again, get some 25g and the bump shouldn't be there. But, as said, keep with the 5/8 if you got em.

    I really like the 23g 5/8" for the delts. Worked out really nice. I just am afraid to push more that 1.5 cc into the delts.
