The addi Turbo® Click system provides 10 different sizes of addi Turbo® tips (3.5mm, 3.75mm, 4.0mm, 4.5mm, 5.0mm, 5.5mm, 6.0mm, 8.0mm, 9.0mm, and 10.0mm), three different lengths of our new, extremely pliable cord (24”, 32” and 40”), and one connector piece which helps to either store stitches or combine your cords. The Click tips require no tools to change; simply insert the cord deep into the tip, twist and release. The tips will remain secure until you change them, thanks to the Click’s revolutionary locking mechanism. The addi Click tips are nickel plated. Our nickel plating process is electro-static, which produces a smooth, rounded edge, where the tip and the cord \"click\" together. Please Note: Every addi product purchased from an Authorized addi Dealer comes with a Lifetime Warranty from any manufacturer's defect.

Needle tips: Addi tips are blunt and slick. Actually the slickest I've ever used. Absolutely my favorite. This is entirely a personal choice. If sharp needles are your preference, Chiaogoos are for you. They are tapered and pointy. No wrong option here; this is entirely subjective. However, as knitters know, knitting with a needle whose tips don't suit you can be a knitting killjoy.
Cords: Both are good. The Addis come with a flexible cord that doesn't feel like the cheap plastic cords one often sees in circular needles. Mine are gold, but I understand the blue are the exactly the same. The color indicates country of manufacture, I think. For the record, I have fixed Addis with both blue and gold cords and never noticed a difference between them. Chiaogoo metal interchangeable have a firm but flexible red cord with metal mesh in the plastic. They are my absolute favorite cords. They never, ever curl up on themselves when you work a small project, which Addis can do, occasionally. For the record, the wooden set of Chiaogoo interchangables (which I also own) come with a clear plastic cord, very different from the red. Luckily the wooden needles are usable with the red cords, which you can also buy separately. The red cords are also called "twist", for some reason.
Joins: Chiaogoo wins here. The Addis inset the cord and then twist to click into place. It works, but necessitates a very small bump where the metal of the needle sets over the metal of the cord end. It's very slight and won't hurt most yarn, but can be annoying. The Chiaogoo join twists the needle into the cord end, creating a much smoother meeting of the two pieces.
So, in short, if the tip is most important, you'll choose the one you want. If the join is what sells it for you, you'll choose Chiaogoo.
I have other brands of interchangable needles. My first set was the inexpensive Denise. The work fine, but the cords are too thick for magic loop knitting, where the excess cord sticks out. I have Knitpicks interchangables, and they have a very nice point for fine work, but they screw together. On some, the connection cannot be tighened enough to prevent loosening, and I really hate having to stop every row to tighten. It's really a mess when they come off mid-row. The Knitpicks cords are fine. The surface on the Knitpicks needles is smooth, but a bit sticky - like paste wax - and some yarns really don't slide well.
The Addis are GREAT. The bamboo is very smooth, and only slightly slower than metal needles (a plus for me, as I don't lose stitches off the needles as easily). Tips are more rounded than the Knitpicks, but I'm knitting with a fuzzy alpca yarn now w/o problems. The cords are flexible and do magic loop well. The joins are nice and smooth - the best of all the sets I have - and they stay together w/o any worries (they bayonet in and twist into a j-shaped channel.) I've read the Addi Lace Clicks lace have shorter needle attachments, and I was concerned that these would not be as comfortable to knit with. The needle attachments on the bamboo Clicks are long enough to hold and manipulate comfortably. These are a great set. I cringed at the price because I'd been disappointed with various things about other sets, and had to buy these w/o trying them. I feel the Addis are the go-to set for me, and are as good as they should be. I'd buy them again. I'm a VERY happy knitter with these.
Overall I like them (but oh golly that pink case is HORRIBLE.. not only is it pink (uhg) it's a horrible pink. Asthetics of the case aside, it is practical, though I'm not fond of styling - it's not bad.
The join is SUPER easy once you get used to 'seeing' where to line things up (hard on the eyes in bad lighting, but I'm getting to where I can do it by feel) and simply do not come undone (yaay, no more live stitches in my lap), however the area where the needle goes over cable has a bit of a 'lip' that you do not notice when actively knitting, but do notice (mostly on smaller needle sizes) when moving stitches up to needle to be worked. I have found myself annoyed at this more than once when I was working a sweater on sock weight yarn using the size 4's. I'll live, it's not horrible, just an annoyance until I'm used to it so much I don't notice.
I got the long tip lace needles, as I like a sharp needle. These are not as sharp as typical addi lace (non interchangeable), and slightly less sharp than my knitpicks - but only slightly. I'm keeping my knitpicks for backup, but I do love the addi's so far and they have become my first interchangeable needle choice from my options - typical expected addi slickness (better than knitpicks) and the stitches fly by.
