Besides, when these Amour hooks were introduced the price was just too high for me, and I knew better than to give in to temptation and purchase the uber-cheap generic sets.
In the meantime I've added ergonomic hooks here and there when the price is right, so I do have most of the Clover brushed gold hooks with the flat handles, but they're really too short for my hand (I use the butter knife hold, my hands are slightly larger than average, and are swollen from psoriatic arthritis in the end joints) and when the project calls for lots of half double crochets, the loops seem to slip off way too easily, and the metal throat is a bit short for loading lots of loops for bobbles.
I scored some of the Tulip Etimo ergo hooks a few years ago, and I love them for long crochet sessions. (These are the charcoal grey handles with the shiny gold hook.) The crook/tapered throat isn't really cut deep enough to hang on to slippery/multiple strands, and the handle itself is not really contoured. But, for larger hands they're a huge improvement over plain aluminum, bamboo or plastic.
Finally! The Amour set is priced low enough to justify the splurge, and I'm not disappointed!
Despite having to give up the dream of a slot /inline-style throat with an ergonomic handle, I'm happy with the Amour. The crook is cut a bit deeper and with a sharper contour than the Tulip Etimo, and even though the Clover Soft Touch (the brushed antique gold) is similar, the Amour is cut deeper and with a more pronounced hook. Yes! If you take a close look at the tempting generic sets, you'll see that the hook itself is stamped / molded crudely, with a very shallow, slippery contour that guarantees frustration. I've read that the rubberized handles come loose with use.
So, at a price comparable to buying the Susan Bates individually, I'm very happy to splurge at last. The contoured "Elastomer" handles feel just right, and the crocheters that use the pencil grip will like where it hits their joints.
The brushed aluminum head is just right too. Unlike bamboo or wood, which is usually too sticky/grippy/draggy for fast crocheting (good for beginners though) and the shiny metal of the Tulip Etimo, which can be too slippery, this finish feels just right to me. The hook end could have been a tad longer for stitch operations that load lots of loops, but for most stitches it's fine. I've detected no rough spots or snags anywhere on the crook, which is hugely important.
I've been hooking Helen Shrimpton's Mandala Madness for a friend and Sophie's Universe for me, and after hours of use I'm sticking with ergonomic hooks! I use a large variety of fibers, from my handspun art yarn to cotton, to bamboo, novelty ribbons, silk, and blends. After trying almost everything out there, I reach for the Amour first now.
Now if anyone knows of a top-quality inline-style slot hook with long ergonomic handles, please let me know! My crochet tool box would then be truly complete!
