Hey guys,

I'm on my first cycle of test-E@ 500mg/week and loving it. First, my personal testimony about it so far. I cooked up my own and got some D-bol and fareston. I don't like D-bol very much because of major shutdown feeling and makes me a little tired so I dropped it for this cycle. The fareston is amazing, incorporate it into your next cycle if you have the chance. I felt the test-E the day after I injected and it's amazing. Well that's enough about me.

I use a 20 gauge needle and wonder what you use and like?

Ditto that. Pretty universal for drawing and injecting.

Needles? I thought we were all men here who would stab funnels into their quad and simply pour the gear right in! At least that's what I do.

Actually, I plan on using a higher gauge for my first cycle because I am a pussy like that. I am leaning towards a 23 gauge 1.5".

BDE you won't regret the 23G 1.5" its really the perfect compromise. Its tolerable in the small areas like bis, tris and calves if you even use those. For the main 4 ventro, glute, delt and quad its like buttery smooth

Well stated. ;)
Proportionally smaller areas.
Points the same, 23G is the best compromise IMO

Water based IM - orange 27G tips (a guess)
Oil Based large IM - green 21G tips
Oil Based Small IM - blue 23G/Orange 27G tips
SC - 29-31G microfine slin pins
IV - 29-31G microfine slin pins

Long live the needle fixation!

Started with 22's as a noob, went to 25's for my next cycle and haven't gone back since.


Also, in my humble opinion, if you have decently low bodyfat there is no need for anything longer than 1". I believe this is where people run into all the trouble with nerves and sore ass injection points.

I can hit any site with a 25g 1" pin. If I shoot slin or any peptide I use a 1/2" 29 gauge pin.

Bump dean and 2the's posts about 1" being plenty if you're staying relatively lean.

22g to draw
25g to pin (heat the oil beforehand)
29g slins as well

-edit

do you burry the 1 inch pins to the heels or would you say 3/4 inch of it is still plenty..in your opinion

All the way. If you have a bit sticking out, then you tend to move the needle in and out of your body as you inject, increasing tissue damage, but mostly increasing the risk of IV injection.

Horse shit. I promised to stay away, but this has to be addressed before JJ goes and gets a noob hurt.

After at least 500 injections, I have never injected a vein. I have never damaged my muscle tissue from moving the needle in and out during an injection. And I never push a needle in all the way.

NEVER push the needle in all the way. Those are plastic ends attached to a surgical steel barrel. Shit like that can break. What happens when you have a needle jammed in all the way , and the plastic decides to malfunction? You get a 23 gauge piece of metal lodged in your ass with no way to pull it out.

Always leave a little of the barrel exposed. Hell - even when I was giving 2,000 - 3000 injections a day to cattle, I never ever pushed the needle in all the way.

Take it for what it is worth.

1.5 inch, 25 gauge all the way around

RJ is correct about leaving some of the pin exposed. thats just common sense/good practice. if you're moving the pin around, practice finding a comfortable position to inject and simply use your free hand to steady the syringe when/where possible

This is true, when i first began this lark we call performance enhancement, iv injection was probably my greatest concern, ive never done it yet.
I am currently perfecting injection technique with using only my feet so i will never say never haha j/k

Anyway people, i think if we all make posts with mistakes, Rainjack will have to dive in and correct them, we do it often enough he will forget he ever left and we may have his wisdom back again.

Quads and shoulders for the most part. Test enanthate/prop and Deca. I'm relatively lean 8-10% and use low dosages. I'm trying to minimize scar tissue, as I am on HRT, and inject frequently ED to EOD, depending on what ester I'm using.
