When I first saw the larger sizes for bulky yarns, and that the hooks are (gasp!) plastic, I was hesitant. However, I sent for the largest size to try on a bulky lap throw project, and ... wow. The plastic is not just "plastic"; it's a high-impact, hard, slick, almost space-aged material that just slides through the yarn. It is every bit as smooth and high-quality as the aluminum-tipped hooks I am used to. The handles, too, are the warm, easy-to grip quality that I love from Amour. I was so impressed that I have since ordered the rest of the available sizes to round out the set.
Don't let the "plastic" in other reviews deter you from trying these hooks. You will find that they really are your trusted Clover Amours in every way. You won't be disappointed.
compared to soft touch: the grip is soft and rubbery, not hard plastic. The handle is longer than the one on soft touch. The handle is also shaped quite differently from soft touch to my surprise. It is somewhat roundish and has a rounded back, as opposed to the soft touch which is kinda like a butter knife handle. I was hoping for a completely smooth steel finish on the hook, but it feels like the exact same hook that is on the soft touch, except that instead of the matte gold spray painted looking surface on soft touch, it instead has silver paint. The hook part does work well and I have had no trouble switching back and forth with other hooks.
Compared to tulip etimo: the rubbery material on the handle is labelled the same stuff as on the tulip (I believe it's called elastomer?), but on the amour hook, it is just slightly harder and more porous than the tulip, which is a tad softer as well as smoother. I love the different colored handles. The handle is shaped even more rounded than tulip etimo's handle and has a bit of a bump on the back. It doesn't bother me but It did feel different. Very comfortable though, as comfortable as the tulip in my book. The hook part --- tulip is a bit smoother, however the amour hook has a slightly pointier head and somehow pokes into stitches more a tad more easily than the tulip.
I like the amour hook well enough that I will probably eventually get them all. It is a nice second option to have to my tulip etimos and seems to force me to use slightly different pressure or muscles in my hand, so I am thinking it is good to switch up once in awhile. I do hope Clover comes out with a nice looking case that holds all the amour hooks neatly.
I used my hook for a dragon tail blanket project so that was 8hr a day crocheting for about a week. No blisters, and no gnarled fingers :)
I have recommended these hooks to anyone who will listen to me, I talk a lot about crochet, yarn and hook. My circle of friends are a bunch of artsy, crocheting biddies.
If you are going to crochet invest the extra money and get a good quality hook. I came back to crochet after a 10 yr hiatus, and I left cause my hands would cramp and my finger would blister where the hook rubbed. It was because I was using the cheap all metal hooks, if I had know about the Clover hooks or the cushioned grip hooks then I would have never left.
