glute shots - 23 gauge 1 inch pin


Looking for opinions/advice on the above size of pin for glute shots. I've ran around 7 or 8 cycles now and have always used a 23 gauge 1 inch or 1.25 inch pin and it seems to have went well (assuming not all is placebo!)

However I've read on this site amongst others that you should really use as a minimum a 1.25inch pin (some say 1.5, ouch!).

I've just taken delivery from medisave of the 1 inch pins for my next cycle.

My question is, could it be possible that i am not receiving my full dose due to the short pin size? Should I reorder the 1.25? What's oher people's experience/thoughts on using the 1 inch pin for glute shots? What's the most effective site to shoot with the 1 inch pins? I'll be using test e and tren e

Cheers
Knuckleheed

    IMO 23g 1" are fine for glutes.

    Depends on your BF% and the size of your glutes - 1" is a little short for a glute shot though.

    But the extra 0.5" will get deeper into the muscle which gives less discomfort with the bigger shots or more painful meds.

    Bumped for the backshift.

    If the 1 inch pins are too short for the glutes, what will happen to the juice? Will it be lost in the fatty layer outside the glute muscle?

    Surely it depends how big your glutes are?! Ive only got a small bum!!

    imo 1" for delts and thighs (to small for glutes to get deep intramuscular) and 1.5 for glutes.

    ive been using blue 1.25 in my glutes but not to sure if its doing the job so i now think green 1.5 is the only suitable one, especially in the offseason with extra fat. I dont dare to stick a green in me so im using different sites now (i know pussy)

    Ok mixed opinion there, so I think that I may try a quad and a delt shot to be on the safe side. Tried a quad shot before and it was extremely painful (I think down to bad technique). Could someone post a link for a quad and delt shot?

    Going back to my previous post, if I use the 1 inch pin for the glute and it doesn't go far enough into the muscle do I lose the juice (basically what are the risks if any)?

    hey, whether it is deep in your ass or just in your ass, it's still in your ass no matter how the injection goes...LOL

    There is no risk. It will be fine.

    I use blue 1.25 for glute shots, but 1" should be fine IMO as long as your youve not got a fat BUTT.

    I def need 1.5 for my arse, I reckon I could get away with a 5/8 on everything else if I was really stuck.

    I must be like J-Lo.
