The Susan Bates hooks I had been using doesn't have the bamboo handles and they are different from these. For example, the heads of the bamboo handle hooks are more rounded and the throats aren't as smooth so the yarn doesn't slide smoothly. You can clearly see the grooves in the bamboo handled hooks. I love the bamboo handles, I'm just not crazy with the difference in the heads and throats of them when both are supposed be be inline. I have attached pictures to show the difference compared with my original Susan Bates hooks.
I bought a few of these in various sizes - the bamboo handles are awesome! They use the heat from my hand and reflect it back, so it keeps my hands from aching. The hook is light weight, and the handle is a little wider than a normal aluminum hook, so it's way more comfortable!
The head of the hook is "sawed" style - not rounded - if that matters to you - some prefer one over the other - I'm still on the fence (I know.... one would think I would have decided after 14 years of crocheting, but I haven't decided).
I have tried to collect a complete set of these, but I can't seem to find a few sizes - I wish I could find them all in one large set. I only just found a set of 14 for around 40$ with S&H, which is a little cheaper than buying them at around 5$ per hook, but it's from an external site (not on amazon) and I'm picky who I buy through - for security reasons. Hopefully Amazon will sell sets of these, soon!
I hadn't opened mine when I made the review and now it's too late to return it. It was taped back up like it was returned and the needle snags the yarn. I love the hooks, but NOT this one!!
