    needle gauge, how small is too small

    Just wanting to get some input, I always used a 23g x1" to do all my injections. I am thinking about going with a smaller gauge for the next go around, and wanting to know what works. is a 30gauge too small? will be injecting 1-2ccs

    Hi trim
    I use 23g, 25g & slin pins(29g). If you use slin pins they are 1cc/ML. I use those for delt injections for my trt dose.

    the only slin pins i am finding are 1/2" is that long enough for delt injections? i assume its probably too short for quads and glutes

    I have used them to inject quads, but mostly delts. As long as you dont have alot of body fat you should be fine. Alot of people use 1 1/2" pins for glutes, but I'm glad to say I dont have a fat ass...lol

    I use 30g slin pins for EVERYTHING but glutes. Works with every other muscles, assuming you're reasonably lean, and i mean EVERY other muscle...you name it, i've pinned it with a slin pin hahah

    If you are going to use slin pins/small gauge needles, i would suggest you heat up the oil first, you dont have to, but depending on the lab and what oil they use, if you dont heat it up, it can take FOREVER to draw.

    I always use 25g myself. On the occasion that I use something like TNE pre workout, I do use a 1/2" slin pin and pin my delt.

    I use a 30g 1/2in for my trt dose. I only inject 100mg or 1/2 cc. I draw with a 18g and backfill the slin and shoot in th quad.

    Re: needle gauge, how small is too small

    29g slin pin for delts, quads and triceps. i don't backload i just wipe the top of the vial really well with an alcohol pad, put the vial in a ziplock bag and put it in warm water for few minutes, draw and shoot. been doing this for several months, can't go back to any other size needle (well i'm actually contemplating trying a 25g for ventro or possibly a 27g later on, that's if i can find my ventroglute.. nervous i'm going to hit my hip bone).

    I just went from 22 to 25g and I like it. Only takes a few extra seconds to pin

    Re: needle gauge, how small is too small

    I just got the slin pins in 28guage and of course tried them out with a lil prop. I pinned myself, and wow, could barely even feel anything. cant believe I have been pinning with 23guage for so long. its a night/day difference

    Interesting thread. I've tried the 28 gauge previously and found them to be really tough to load & wasn't sure of the depth (eg. getting fully into the muscle). I'm sure they drive less trauma to the body however...may need to revisit.

    What length 29 do you use for your delts?

    25G x 1" for glutes, quads and delts.... 30g 1/2" in the belly (within 1" of the belly button in any direction for GH).

    Pull it with an 18g, swap needles to the 25, heat with a blow dryer, and shoot. No problems.

    You can either backload them (which sucks) or buy the 1cc syringes with a BD/Luer Lock fitting (which I do) and pull with a blunt or larger needle and swap. Very small needles dull easily, you can and I have pulled with a 30 and shot it but they do tend to dull and it makes for a sloppy feeling pin.
