This is possibly the worst inoculating loop needle I've ever handled. They are aluminum rods with pieces of wire taped to them using scraps of aluminum tape (the kind you use to seal ductwork in HVAC systems). The taping job isn't done well, and the wires tend to fall off, which is problematic when they fall off into the medium you are trying to culture.

Sure, they do the job, but so does an unbent paperclip, and that has a more stable handle.

Also: they arrive with a distinct curve in the wire, because whatever wire they're using is way too malleable for this application. You want something fairly stiff and straight. Again, a paperclip would be a better choice.
