I use 23 G 1.5 for almost everything. 23G 1 inch for thighs or delts. I always draw with a 20G.

I use to do an 18g to draw, but noticed there could be little pieces the running stopper that could potentially break off.

Always wondered about that rubber stopper "fatigue" possibility, whether or not it resulted from too big a draw pin OR from too many draws from the same vial. I was used to 10ml vials when I first acquired some 20mls ... I stared at those vials and each syringe for a while before I got confident. Never have owned a 50ml vial and not likely to now that my career is headed in the "less is enough" direction.

I do 23 gauge x 1" no matter where I inject. 23 makes it go in smoother than the 25 in my opinion
Same here. In my case, I'd rather have a controlled 10 sec injection with a 22g/1 or 23g/1 than trying trying to push something thicker like 250mg cyp or undec through a 25. The only time I'd use a a 25 is with prop, tren a or another short ester where the mg/ml is lower and oil's thin.

It is caused by to many draws and/or pulling with to large of a pin. I used to get Mexican vet grade in 50cc vials and would transfer it into 10cc or 20cc vials. No need to have rubber floaties or exposing it to outside air.:)

I used to buy these 19G filter needles to draw when I saw a piece of rubber floating. Miss those suckers. You never know when you need it.

Draw with 22 and inj with 25x1.5 I heat it up under hot running water for a few minutes and it plunges quite freely after that.
