Draw Needle


#1

I ended up getting 18 guage draw needles, I'm afraid it will tear the stopper up, any thoughts?

Went with a 25guage 1.5 to inject.

a 22 will leave a noticeable “hole” whereas 27, 29 etc don’t leave a noticeable mark. so, maybe an 18 is large enough to start tearing it up, I don’t know.

BUT- if you have 25s you could easily draw and pin wih that. draw with a 25 then put a new tip on it, or fuck it, the needle’s only been slightly blunted, pin as-is.

Yea, you’re probably going to chew up the stopper if using an 18g to draw. I wouldn’t recommend it.
