I know a lot of people prefer 1/2" over 5/16th" but 25g for IV?! I think I only ever used that gauge once when it was all that was available. IIRC I was like holy balls I gotta use the horse needle.I also use luer lock syringes to draw, but I swap needles to a 25 g 1/2 inch to shoot. I like them a lot better than insulin needles
Most people I knew used 28 or 29g 1/2" but I found even those to be large. I have hypersensitivity so I always preferred as fine a tip as possible up to a point. People really do differ greatly in what they prefer to use! To each his own I say though.
