I absolutely love the Clover Interchangeable Circular Knitting Needle "Takumi Combo" Set.

I've also had the cables unscrew while knitting and catch the yarn.

I've had these for a couple of weeks now and I've experimented with them on several projects. The joins and tips are smooth and easy on the yarn that I knit with -- no catching or snagging with several different kinds of real wool. The swiveling cord is nice and the tips are just the right length for this man with large hands though they are not sharply pointed and may prove difficult for intricate stitch work, like P3togTBL.

I haven't had any problems with them coming unscrewed yet. I imagine that using a small piece of rubber glove or some other gripping material (like the little one that comes with the Boye set) would tighten the join when you first put them together but the swiveling cord seems to eliminate any issues with coming unscrewed for me. I actually read another review on a knitting blog where the knitter couldn't get her tips unscrewed and had to resort to the gripper to get the tips off the cords so your mileage may vary.

I have several sets of interchangeables (Boye, Knit Picks, Denise) and all of them that use the screw-in method for attaching the tips to the cords seem to have some problem with unscrewing when you get to the end of a heavy sweater or other large, heavy project that places stress on the join while knitting. That may be more about the laws of physics than anything and perhaps the Addi Clicks would be more reliable for knitters whose style produces frequent unscrewing.

I would say that this is a good, middle of the range product and the size range of the tips and the swiveling, very thin cords are great. I wish they had some kind of end caps though so they could be used as stitch holders or single points; all my other interchangeable sets have this option but not these. Wonder why?

I bought a cheaper set first, but was disappointed. Of the five sets available under $180, there were only two that had 16" sets included. I'd already tried and disliked the other one. Let me explain about the 16" set. A knitter needs 16" needles to make hats. As such, this isn't a length you can skip. I calculated that, to have a full set of 16" needles, you can expect to spend around $50. Think about that when comparing prices of other combo sets.

The tips have tight threads, and connect securely to the wires. I haven't used my set extensively yet, but so far have not had any kind of trouble. The bamboo has a beautiful texture; it's not smooth like metal, meaning no slipping, yet isn't coarse.

The case is very nice, and clearly leather. It still has that pleasant scent after more than a few months owning it. The case is zippered all the way around.

The set comes with a full set of needles, so unless you use gigantic needles, you're not going to need to buy any more.

I wholeheartedly recommend!

I love my Clover Takumi Combo! I love using Clover Takumi's. So when the interchangeable set came out I just *had* to get it. There are some cons but I just love using Takumi's so this works for me.

PROS:
nice range in needle sizes! US3-15
thin cords for ease of stitch movement
short needles to accommodate shorter circular knitting
case has secure bands to hold needles tightly

CONS:
needles are a bit rough
needles unscrew every once in a while
no stopper & connector (I wonder if you can use other brands' stopper/connector)

When I got these, I immediately transferred a project I was working on to the needles. They are very smooth and the flexible cable is a bonus. I have an elderly Boye NeedleMaster and have purchased other bamboo needles as well. The quality of the needles is the best I have used. I noticed another user remarked that they unscrew themselves as you knit. Clover includes some very specific instructions on how to attach the needles to the cable. If you follow these instructions, the needles do not unscrew. Also, Clover has designed the cables so that an properly attached cable spins inside its housing, so there is no twisting.

My only concern is the longevity of the bamboo and the availability of replacement parts. Since this is a new product, I will hope that these become available later.

I debated whether or not to purchase a set of interchangeable circular needles for over a year, but could not find a set in bamboo. I already have every size in clover straight needles, so I had an expectation of quality. I have not been disappointed!
The needles themselves are smooth and warm in my hands. The joints are also smooth and tight, do not catch my knitting and turn as you knit so the cables don't twist. I've had absolutely no issues with the joints unscrewing and I am only hand tightening. However, I would suggest if needed, use a rubber jar opener to hold the joint while screwing it together to give you some additional torque. The variety of cable lengths means I am never a loss for the perfect needle for any project. I am currently knitting a large bag in fair isle and found my straight needles to be too short. No worries! I just transferred the project to the circular needle where my project has plenty of "space." I only wish they had included sizes 1, 2 and 17, for which I'd have been more than willing to pay a few more dollars; then I would truly always have the right sized needle on hand! And oh, one last bonus: these will never warp like the straight needles do! Awesome. :)
