FlexM1 install with needle questions

My piercer has neither done a flex install nor using the 5mm needle, so he’s leaning on playing safe first;

  1. Due to the size of the FlexM1, he’s a bit wary of me installing it at my R5 / Knife edge , and instead recommends me R4. I would go for R4 if I’m not planning to get a FlexMT in the future. Are there anything that we should be aware of if I still went for R5?

  2. Do the installation side of the FlexM1 matters? ie the front/top (black) and back (silver)

  3. Any other stuff/tricks that I should inform him? Ill pass him the flex install procedure as well

I think that is a good decision, alternatively if it works for you, would be using the #4 on the other hand.

Black side up is Amal tracking and controlling you, Silver side up is your government…

Nah, fair question, but it doesn’t mater, it’s just the chip :+1:

Not to be confused with “just the tip”

Thats what he said :smirk:

Jokes aside, he did use lube last time for my NExT and xM1 impant.

Most of the reader that I plan to use with the M1 favors the right hand. I tried using those reader with my left hands for a few days, wasnt pleasant.

And thanks for the new technique, I’ll let my piercer know !
