You have to watch how skinny of a needle you use. if the eye is long you are more than likely having a good chance of breaking it...I use a thicker needle with a small little eye and have never had any problems...I used to use a skinny needle with a long eye long time ago cuz the skinny needle seemed to go thru the layers better but now I'd rather not break another needle due to the end of that one that I broke ended up in my eye! UGH. Not a fun experience! Bowmaking may be hazardous to your health! LOL.
