How many people here replace their needle after drawing from a vial? is it important?
Use the same needle for drawing and always a new needle for sticking
i agree with buralou,i always do
sometimes. depends on what, and what volume. I can survive a 22 in the glutes, but anything smaller than that takes forever to draw anything, so its easier to have an 18 to draw, and 23 or smaller to use
draw with an 18 or 20 shoot pin with a 23. always replace the pin, ALWAYS
cool guys that's what i heard, just wanted to make sure.
I have done it both ways but I prefer to draw with a 18-20 and shoot with a new 23.
I am currently drawing with 23 and shooting with 25. But that's just because I have some 23's i need to get rid of.....does take forever. Think ill get a little thicker guage from here on out. Eh, live and you learn.
Always mate, once that needle is exposed to the air it's not sterile. Once it breaks the vial it's now covered in bacteria and dull. Definitely replace every time
Not to mention dulling of the blade.
People should use filter needles drawing from amps but I know alot that don't
PM me with any order questions and concerns
I remember my mistake of using a pin I already used to draw with...boy was that ****er dull...
i have a ****load of 3mL syringes with 18g 1.5" on them to draw with, then i replace with either 23g 1.5" for glutes or 25g 1" for quads or delts
yeah replace so you get a sharper needle when you stick makes it a whole lot easier
meh ur all a bunch of sissies, i use a turkey injecter to pin my gear!!! jk
I have to say i'm liking using a 22 in the quads better than 23
somehow it seems less painful. it may be like the difference between 27s and 25s in the delts. Although the 27s are smaller, they end up slower so stay in longer (and you are more likely to jiggle it the longer its in), plus since you are squeezing harder you also have it leaving the needle at higher pressure into your body. I'm just guessing thats why.
