    Anyone know why Insulet decided to make the pod syringe harder to use? The number markings are larger, but lighter in color, and it's much harder for me to fill the syringe because everything is smaller and it takes more strength to pull the plunger back. Removing the black part on the plunger eliminates the bubble issue, but that's the only improvement I can see.

    I'm finding the new syringes easier to use.

    Yea, me too. I was having issues with the black seal coming loose.

    I did have a panic attack though when opened a new box and thought all the syringes were defective.

    Maybe it's just me and my giant fingers. I had a hell of a time filling that syringe.

    It's not just you. :wink: The "wings" are definitely smaller and I found it awkward, although getting rid of the black seal was definitely a plus.
