    You can get away with a 1/2 inch in bi's, Tri's, and shoulders although I prefer an inch in shoulders.

    i like at least 1" for everything. some people get lumps at 1/2", depends on bodyfat too, but deeper in the muscle the better.

    Sometimes I am a big puss and give up at around 1/2 inch. At most it will be a little sore, maybe a small lump. Never had any complications with it though. For standard I would go deeper, but if you already have 1/2 inch pins then go for it.

    Go with a 1"er and IMO I'd use a larger bore needle. A 30g is pretty small bro and not very durable. Smallest I'd go would be a 25g.

    I shoot my Winny with 5/8 inch, and they go fine in the biceps and shoulders. I think you should okay, but be careful. Also, I use 25G, and it is not painful at all, I don't know why you went with 30G. Can the Winny even pass through that

    As winny is water based it will flow thro a 30g with no problem and 1/2" is ok I normally use 3/4" or 19mm

    Yeah, that is true, and it will go through since it's water based, I just meant like ripped4fsu said, it can sometimes get clogged up.

    I would think it would clog too. I've clogged 25g pins with winny before, so I don't think I would bother with a 30. Also, I hadn't ever really thought about it, but one of you guys made a good point the other day when you mentioned that since slin pins are not real durable there is a chance that it could break off inside of you. Not good. So, I stick with slin pins for subq only.

    Well i am on my 8th shot and no problems with the 30g......they are a little flimsy and I never thought of them breaking off.

    also no problems with clogging...


    thanks for all your inputs....

    Terinox - i went with 30's cause a friend of mine works at a doctor and gave them to me...free pins = good pins lol

    Well who can turn down things that are free right

    If they ARE working for you, then you're fine, just be careful, we only say this for your safety bro. And all I meant is that with a 25G there is no pain, so, if that was something you were slightly worried about, no need to

    Good luck

    23ga 1" pin is good for most, but I go with a 25ga 1" for water base injects.

    I pesonally use 23g 1.5 inch pins i do this because i can go in as deep as i want example if i only go in 1 inch i still have some sticking out incase the needle busts off and and i can inject anywhere i want with proper length regulation
