As monte said it will scratch but it will be ok . I’ve been using glass mead for about 3 yrs now with the same injector it’s scratched yes but still works just fine.

I've shot thousands of baits, and while the injector is sratched, I still haven't replaced my o-rings.  Still working great. I use the bass tackle injectors btw.

Mine also scratched up and its not ok. Cant use it anymore. It got jammed up so bad with salt I had to hammer it back apart. I took it all apart and cleaned out tube real good even sanded with fine sandpaper, installed new o rings and It will not shoot anymore, just gets jammed up.

I’ve been using the same Bears injector for about3-4 years now. It is scratched but does not jam . With that said what kind you use I’m sure plays into it. The stuff I have came from harbour  freight.

After s year of using glass and 2 years of heavy use my Do It large  (9oz ) injector shows a lot of scoring inside, but no damage to O rings. However using the injector this past weekend I can hear air coming out of the Oring on the plunger.

Actually I feel lucky to get 2 years out of the O rings.

That said, I ordered 2 new O rings from Do It, Price was $4.98 shipping with the "Super Savor" was 8.95??  imagine if I didn't use a "Super Saver " .  They could put those two things in an envelope with fist class postage for .49 

Where do you guys buy O rings? I really hate to spend a few hours wandering around the orange superstore looking for those small items. Or another 2 hours wandering around the blue superstore.  Not sure if these rings are a standard size.

Ebay.  You just need to find out what size that you need.   If you PM me your address, I'll send you one of the ones that fit my BassTackle injector (along with the size info) to try.  Failing that you could always ask Do-it what size the o ring is. 

If there is a hydraulic shop anywhere near you they could probably help you put as well with size info.

I’m scratching my head on how unused abrasive media would scratch less than used/recycled.  Using it new for abrasive blasting knocks the sharp edges off.  On the other hand I haven’t used this media for any reason except abrasive blasting, and it certainly has no cutting power after 1 use.

Recycled media is crushed glass, IE bottles etc. New media is just that new. Made that way from hot melt or whatever process is involved in making it.

I'll give away something I've tried cause I know there is no way the commercial injectors will use it in their machines.. besides it settles pretty hard.    reflective coating powder.. the stuff the use for coating centerline strips.  can't remember where I found it .. but it was pretty cool.. I'm pretty sure its glass or silica (which is what glass is anyway).. give that a try.  It will make baits heavier.. but like I said, it settles
