Unomedical sells both the Contact and the Contact-D, which is
disconnectable, in the following:

Needle lenghts:  6 mm, 8 mm and 10 mm
Tubing lengths (overall):  60 cm (24 in.), 80 cm (31 in.) and 110 cm (48 in.)

Disetronic sells the Accu-Check RapidLink (non-disconnectable), the
Accu-Check Rapid-D (disconnectable) and the Disetronic Rapid-C (only
in Germany, disconnects with a C-connector like a Tender/Comfort) in
the same sizes as above and also in a 12 mm needle for the RapidLink
and the Rapid-D.  The Rapid-D and the FlexLink from Disetronic are
also available with a 30 cm (12 in.) tubing.

All of the above use a 28 Gauge metal needle, very easy, non-kinking
insertion and really quite comfortable in the right spots.  I like
using the 6 mm needle in my arm for variety.
