Speaking form experience the diameter of 0.3~0.35 is the most commonly used and worked well. The mostly used secant needle is moderate, as too obtuse and acute angle needle is not ideal. The treated needle is the best choice for secant. That is because the needle pinpoint is gathered together would not to bifurcate.
