1" is fine: Hi. 1" is fine. Testosterone enanthate is pretty viscous stuff, so we usually have people draw it into the syringe with an 18 g needle, then change needles to a 20 g for injecting into them. So a 1" 20g needle should suit you. Have you thought about transdermal testosterone? You might want to talk with your doc about that. Good luck!
