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. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment (1) Reply 157 of 164 people found the following review helpful Love these, but…., April 24, 2010 By Christie (Centralia, WA United States) – I purchased these for myself for Christmas. And I do like them! It’s nice having all those sizes at my fingertips. And the tips are slick and slippery and it makes me knit a lot faster. And the way the needles connect to the cables is really easy – no keys to tighten them. It’s great! BUT – the cables. Ugh. These cables kink up and stay kinked up. I can’t get them to straighten out! It’s annoying – and after spending this kind of money on a set of needles, I feel like I shouldn’t have to fight with a cable that kinks. I have an old set of size 2 Addi Turbo’s that I bought years and years ago and those cables do not kink up – yet the cables being used in the kit are not the same as the cables from my old set of 2’s. My overall experience with these are good – so I gave it the three stars because they are an awesome set of needles. Aside from the kinky-thing… 🙂 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comments (30) Reply 117 of 122 people found the following review helpful There’s nothing like having the right tool for the job, September 20, 2011 By lizellis – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) I’ve been knitting since I was about 6 or 7 and believe me, that is a very long time. From the moment that I discovered Addi Turbos, they’ve been my favorite needle. I’ve loved their heft, their smooth join, their shiny, slick surface and the audible click they make when I’m knitting a project. This, of course, is entirely subjective but as far as I’m concerned Addi Turbos are the finest knitting needles ever produced. Over the years, I’ve collected hundreds of needles of various materials. I’ve tried plastic, wood, bamboo and different types of metals. I always come back to Addi. When I learned a few years ago that Skacel was coming out with a line of interchangeable Addis, I was thrilled, that is until I realized that I already had far more needles than I could ever use, including two interchangeable sets from other manufacturers. Although I suppressed it for a few years, the desire to own these needles never left me and recently and happily, I succumbed. The Clicks are everything I imagined and more. The needle tips themselves are of the same quality as my individual Addis and important to me, they feel and even sound the same. The cables are soft and supple and I’ve experienced no problems with kinking or curling. The joining mechanism is pure genius. It’s fast and easy and requires no tools. Yet it produces a smooth, seamless join that’s very strong and secure. At the same time, it’s easy to undo when you’re ready. Even the presentation is well done. And the company stands behind its products and offers a lifetime guarantee from manufacturer’s defects. For anyone who has used and liked Addi Turbo needles, I recommend the Click system without reservation. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comments (2) Reply Leave a comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
