Ruth, I use the MiniMed Quick Sets which do have a serter for them.  For 
me, using the serter is much easier than giving shots ever was (just push a 
couple buttons) and I only have to do it twice each week rather than 3 or 4 
times each day.  Very rarely do I ever feel any pain on insertion. YMMV.
