Wow, I can't imagine not being able to get it through. Are you running up against a wall and it will go in no further? I stick a 5/16 (8mm) all of the way in and then have the plastic nipple where the needle is attached also indented into my skin a ways. Are you sure you just weren't in deep enough?

I had used 31gauge x 5/16" (8mm) for a while but always thought they were a little too flimsy. Not that they would bend and break (try breaking one off by bending -- takes a dozen bends at least) but WAS concerned about bending and then glancing off the tough/smooth cavernosa. So I have since always used 30g x 5/16".

As far as price goes lately I have never paid more than around 15 dollars per box of 100 - and five years ago they would be around 10 dollars a box. Probably can't mention name of on-line supplier directly -- could PM if you like -- have used a number of diff suppliers over the years depending on who had best prices.

Ah shoot! I'm starting Trimix next month. I have a few boxes of BD Insulin Syringes 31G 6mm because I'm on TRT. I pin 17mg of test cyp, SubQ, daily into belly.

Is anyone successfully using 31G 6mm syringes? Should I just forget about it and go straight to purchasing 8ml?

I imagine you could press the 6mm in hard enough to make it work but from a practical perspective I'd say no, don't try using the 6mm. Many guys find the 8mm problematic due to their shorter length as compared to the 12.7 mm needle syringes. I use the 8mm needle. 6mm is too short and syringes are too cheap to try and make them work.
