[IP] How do you choose a lancet?

>Given the recent discussion and some agreement about lancing and
>changing the lancet very rarely, I'm trying to decide what lancets I
>should get.  On the one hand, it seems like I should get the BD Ultra
>Fine II because they are the thinnest available.  However, in trying
>these, it *seems* that because they are so small, they don't puncture a
>hole in my calloused fingers large enough to get a sufficient drop of
>blood.  Given this, I'm wondering if I should go with a thicker lancet.
>Any advice would be appreciated, as well as suggestions for specific
>brands of lancets, if not the BD Ultra Fine II.  FWIW, I'm using an
>auto-Lancet lancing device and I don't intend to change that, unless
>someone has something really nifty that they would like to suggest.
