    Smallest Gauge sizes for Test E injection?

    Hey guys beginner here!

    I'm currently waiting on receiving my first Omnia Test E 250 and Dbol (oral) products.

    I was wondering if anyone could steer me in the right direction as to whats the best needle for somebody like me with a really low fat percentage and pretty small muscles in general that has quite the phobia with needles.

    I realize i'm going to have to man up and bite the bullet which i'm more then willing to do, but to get me started i'd really like to know if i could get away with using something small. I'm guessing theres no way i could use a insulin pin? So what size gauge would i need and how deep would i need to go exactly? I really would like the smallest one possible, i'm not bothered about getting the craziest results with some tetanus shot sized barbs! Would love to hear from you blokes and gals!


    Thanks so much for your time!

    For me 29ga works for delts, bi and tri.

    And 25ga for quads. 29ga went subcutaneous in the quad, it really depends on your body fat distribution.

    When I started first I used 23ga for quads, it's really anxiety-inducing, mid-cycle I was inserting only half of the needle and shaking at that. I'm using the remaining syringes with 23ga pins to backfill the slin pins.

    I'd stick with smaller doses (max 1ml) if you don't shoot them deep into the muscle. Just my anecdotal .02 cents

    The guage of the needle will be dependent upon the size of the syringe. If your using a 1ml syringe you can push miglyol 840 through a 30g, but on a 3ml syringe 27g is about the smallest you can use.

    Miglyol 840 is the thinnest carrier oil other than using 100% EO. I bought some 30g 1 inch needles to try, and they work with a 1ml syringe. I tried a 3ml syringe, it will work, but it will take probably 30 minutes to inject 1ml.

    I use 23 & 25 gauge. Both are thin, and neither will cause you any discomfort

    Thanks for the replies everyone!

    So sadly the consesus is i can't use a insulin needle?



    You guys seem to think a 25ga regular need would be good enough? I have extremely low body fat btw and im planning on pinning my glute

    you can but its a pain in the ass...25g 1" is tiny but effective, it will still take a minute or so to push 1ml in...when the needle goes in you fell a pinch then you really don't feel anything unless you hit a nerve...relax once you do it you will say to yourself that was nothing...

    20 to draw, 23 to pin...didn't notice any difference in using a 23 or 25 to pin as far as pain...pin glutes, hips and quads

    I use 25g for all my IM injects. If you want to do SUBQ injects you can backload some insulin pins and do 29-30g.

    Haven't read the above answers but I’d suggest insulin pins... that’s what I use for TRT anyway. No pain, no scar tissue... it’s great!

    Donít you get big lumps at the injection site? I tried that for a couple of weeks but I didnít like those hard lumps popping up under the skin.

    -Sometimes but they're gone within 24 hrs and bother me less than a sand flea.
    - They are like welts, but it has to do with what I'm injecting and how much. I haven't got a welt, that I can remember, lately. I am not sure why I get them, but the occurance seems to group itself so, there must be a trigger. I'm sure it isn't hygiene.
    -My advice is to inject slow. Who gives a shit if it takes a whole thirty seconds to inject .5ml through a 28 g needle. It isn't as important that I don't feel it, it's important that it doesn't leave scar tissue.
    -I draw and inject with a 29g slin pin. I could use a smaller one but the insulin ones are cheaper and sub-cutaneous is more effective.

    I rec the 3cc/ml syringes. 22-23g to draw up, and switch to 25g 1 or 1.5" pin to inject with (you could use 23g to pin also)
    no i would not rec slin pins (though i have used them in a bind)
