The handles are somewhat flat, and are a moderately hard tactile plastic, making the shape good for pencil and knife grip users. The throat/head/shanks are not a shiny slick metal, they're matte finished, but still smoothly glide against the yarn, but with the very finest, tiniest almost imperceptible grip. The shape of the head is slightly tapered, but not quite as tapered as Boye hooks.
The case is decent, and rolls up, securing to itself with a little patch of velcro. The flap above the hook pockets folds over the hooks to keep them in place, and to keep them from getting scratched. I wish they would have made the flap a teensy bit longer on the left side, as my C hook keeps escaping almost every time I stow my hooks. It would have been nice to have an extra pocket for some little scissors. Sometimes I stick my tiny crane scissors in with my C hook to help keep it wedged in place. I keep a yarn needle in the case by piercing the fabric through with it behind the inside velcro. I've been doing this the whole time I've owned it, and the fabric is very sturdy and forgiving (no hole in the fabric yet).
I highly recommend this set. It's a good deal, too, considering the price of individual hooks. My granddaughter lost my J hook the the replacement at HL was almost $8.
Also, as a word of caution, don't lay your set on top of your yarn/work-in-progress, as the velcro will stick to and pull your yarn making a fuzzy spot.
I have different sets of the Clover Pom Pom makers so that I can all different sizes from 1" to 4 1/2".
I love how consistent the pom poms are and how easy it is to use.
The smoothness of stitch is AMAZING, both in the finish of the metal of the hook and in the light smooth feel in the hand. I have small but chubby hands, sausage fingers if you want to get technical, so the chubbier end of the Boye hook bothers me a bit in the curl of my pinky finger, whereas the Clover handle is flatter.
Lastly, I enjoy some entrelac or Tunisan crochet, mainly C2C, so they are smaller and can be accomplished on an ergo hook, however, entrelac requires that you use the back or bump of a stitch rather than a loop. If your hook tip is too blunt, it makes this difficult. The tip of the hook on these Clover hooks is blunt enough to not go through the strands but sharp enough to push between the bump and the loops much more easily.
There is the base where the loom pieces fit into so that you have a steady piece to hold onto and work with (also makes it handy for when you want to use two sizes together as you can attach one of the larger pieces and smaller ones at the same time).
The directions for a basic flower are easy to follow, though this loom has plenty of uses beyond that. I provided a picture showing how I made two different flowers. Once was made looping wire around the loom and then wrapping the center with yarn, the other is just yarn woven on the loom. You could knit on it though there are no notches on the pegs to hold the yarn so it'd not be the ideal loom for that. Searching online will find you much better directions than the simple short ones than come with it.
If there is a negative to this, it's that the plastic needle seems a bit flimsy. It has taken my abuse so far, but I do keep worrying that I am going to break it. I'll likely replace it with a metal one.
The plastic dome cover keeps everything together nicely. I'm definitely not sorry that I bought it.
