Here's what I do with 99.99% favorable results. I use an auto inject device with a syringe with 1/2" length needles. The device allows you to adjust the depth of penetration of the needle (along with with making a piece of cake to inject with my non-dominant hand on the other side). After the first few trials at varying injection depths I have it dialed in to extreme reliability. This is the device I use: ... 415&sr=8-5

I personally like the 5/16". However if they aren't working out for you then definitely try the 1/2" needles. Use what works! You may have to experiment a bit so don't hesitate to try 1/2" and any other options. Everybody is different!

I have a 6 inch girth and need a 1/2 inch needle. Alternate between using an Autoject and not. I’d move up to a 1/2 inch needle and see if that helps you.
