    Syringe size

    I have done injectible test prescribed by a doctor but I'm about to receive some Sup. and I need syringes. I'm ignorant on this so I need some help determining the length and diameters of needles. Also I've heard eBay is a good place to get them. Is that true? Thanks in advance

    I use 25g pretty exclusive. Sometimes 27g if I'm pinning certain muscles. I use 5/8" only. I would use 1" if I pinned the glutes.

    How lean are you? I stuck with 23g 1" because that's what the doc gave me the first time

    I'm a fan of 25 or 27 ga x 1 1/4 or 1 1/2". I used 23ga and ended up with calcifications and scar tissues in glutes. 27ga is my fav but more difficult to hold steady while slowly pushing in a ml.

    I have done this in the past but you really need to warm the oil up. Impossible to draw with though.

    I use a 23 gauge 1-1.5" for drawing and injecting oil based.

    Bacteriostaticwater. com. Excel 1-1/2" 25 guage needles 3ml barrels. The excel syringes have a nipple on the plunger that pushes out the medicine in the luer lok. That website is cheap and fast as hell. I ordered in the morning and 48 hrs later had my stuff. Its set up for gear heads. They have discounted kits for juice monkeys.

    Op personally I would use the smallest needle possible. Scar tissue and damage to the soft tissue can and does occur over the long run. I'm on Dr prescribed trt. My Dr didn't explain anything to me when I first started. and I was injecting with 21 guage 1.5 inch whale harpoon needles for the first year or so I was on trt. Unfortunately to this day(10 years later) I still have some issues with certain areas where I use to inject. I would recommend trying 25-27 guage 1 inch needles and see how that works for you. Or you can even inject with 29-30G insulin syringes, if you have trouble drawing your gear up in a 30 guage you can always try back loading them. I've done it and it works pretty good ( you just draw up with a bigger guage needle ,grab the syringe you want to inject with. Pull the plunger part of the syringe out of the back. Take your full syringe and squirt the gear in the back of the syringe. Carefully put the plunger back in. Turn it over and get the air out and inject)

    Some people get lumps in their fat tissue if they use short needles. I use 1-1/2 because it prevents that. I got lumps pinning prop once and it sucked bad. I was using 1" then.

    I suppose I should have specified. If a person isn't lean then they CANT use a 1inch needle unless there pressing pretty hard with the needle to cause an indentation.(which in that case a longer needle would be easier) to use a insulin syringe you either have to be extremely lean, or inject subq( if you inject subq, then smaller volume shots are much better) I've learned that the hard way. All my shots are subq now.

    I don't warm the oil up anymore. Summer is here. Room temperature is fine.

    I use 25g to draw. Biggest difference in PIP was brand. I followed all the pip reduction tips on an eastern european brand and got horrible painful pip that lasted days. It was real stuff.
    With my new usa brand (also legit), I don't do anything special to it and have near zero pip.

    There can't be much fat on the shoulder or side quad. If when you tense it it's hard one inch will get through to the muscle easily when it's relaxed . In my opinion.

    the real issue is most people WAY underestimate there bf levels. anyways I should not of used the word can't. Higher bf users can use a 1inch pin. They just need to choose the right spots(shoulder being one, and outter quad) and push a little harder. If you look up intramuscular injections I believe it states it should be deep in the muscle tissue(atleast for test) at 1inch on a 20% + bf you will not be deep in the muscle without pushing in.

    With insulin pins its near impossible to draw oils with but they work well if you backload them (remove plunger,fill)

    Obs, your preference for scar tissue is beyond me.

    Like I said, I draw with 25g. And inject with 30g .5 inch. No problems. I will be recommending this to anybody when asked.

    To be honest I don't agree. My bf is over 25 but my legs and shoulders have clear definition. I am easily deep into the muscle. Know your body and use common sense.

    I stay right around 12%. Up to 15 if I try to bulk. Even then I rarely get to 15%
