I am so glad I purchased these needles! After reading all the reviews, I was reluctant to purchase Karbonz. But I am guessing I got a circ set that was re-designed after all of the customer feedback. There is no annoying sound or feeling. It was ready to jump onto the sleeve and go round after round. No prepping like other reviews I've read.
Cable: very flexible and doesn't get in the way at all!
Needles: They are amazing! I'm using 100% baby alpaca sport weight yarn and my stitches are being held very nicely on the needle. I like to keep them pretty close to the tip and I end up dropping stitches. Not any more! The shaft holds the stitches so well! The tip has a smooth join and the stitches can be see very well against it. They're not crazy sharp (which is good since my index finger now has a changed fingerprint due to poking it so much). But they are pointy enough to catch the stitch correctly.
I will GLADLY purchase a whole set of these needles in straight circ, DPN and, if I can, interchangeable.
