Re: [IP] Re: SoftSet-No Delivery
Although I am nowhere near as thin as Darren, 5'8" @ 150 I find if I
pinch the area I'm going to insert in that I have no problems. It
bunches the fat so you don't "bounce" off muscle tissue. (How that for
a visual :) ?) I also use the softserter and really appreciate it.... I
was always a slooooow inserter with needles.
