    5/8 is long enough, if your using a 1" or a 3/4" then just use your best judgment and dont go all the way in. unless you have huge shoulders and 5/8" wont cut it then 3/4" or 1" is fine.

    Cheers pal. I've only got the sizes I mentioned as well as 2" for drawing the gear from the vials. I'll have to go in my quad tomorrow and then get down the needle exchange and get some 5/8" after my workout so I can use them next time/in future.

    5/8 is just not long enough.....if 1'' is too long you are too small to be using.

    25g pin and 1'' will do the trick.

    Lately I'm using 23g 1", 25s work fine and 5/8" probably wont hurt you if the volume and/or frequency is low. If you are not ultra lean though there is no reason to avoid a 1 incher, there better be plenty of meat there otherwise you shouldn't be shooting.
