I have the same problem w/ the sil serter.  I just
can't get a shallow enough angle.  When I aim for
15-20 degrees, the needle skims over my skin 
instead of going in.  Plus the trigger button is
in a lousy location.  That said, I only went back
to sils because of the serter.  Inserting manually
was just too painful.  

Has anyone figured out how to get a shallow angle
with the sil serter?  I've tried pinching up the 
skin so it looks like the needle will go in almost
parallel, but it doesn't usually work.

Thanks!
