    First off, visually they are lovely. The bright polished nickel tips and cable joins are a brilliant contrast to the shiny black needle shafts. It's worth noting that the needle size is printed both on the carbon shaft, and the steel cable join. I thought this was a nice touch.

    The points are pointy, without being too stabby or sharp. I generally work somewhat tightly, and haven't so far noticed any soreness in my fingertips. In fact, my hands feel pretty great after using these.

    The cable itself is very flexible, without being floppy at all. There's really no memory in it, and I haven't so far seen any sign of kinking or twisting.

    Overall, I think these carbon fiber needles are a bargain. It's a shame that they are only made up to a US 4 size. It's probably to keep costs down, but the light weight would make knitting with larger needles a breeze.

    Pros: Gorgeous to look at. Affordable. Great point. Comfortable lightweight material. Great cable flexibility for magic loop.
    Cons: the join between the needles and cable is not as smooth as it needs to be. Constantly had to massage the stitches over the join which is a pain when using magic loop method. Not my go-to choice.

          Love these for magic loop, particularly for socks. They are easy on the hands, nicely pointed ends, flexible cables. I have tried most of the brands on the market, and these are the best for my use.

              Love the needles, cables are flexible with very smooth joins. I would like to see longer cables like 47 inch and longer.

              The needle tips and material are nice and the cables have just the right amount of suppleness for magic looping, but I was surprised and disappointed that the joins are a bit rough.

              Speedy delivery.

                  I bought these to try magic loop and two socks at a time. I ended up making one sock at a time with this wonderful circular needle.

                    I might be spoiled from using Signature needles, and Addis, but the cord on these needles are terrible. They're highly inflexible and difficult to maneuver, and make for an unpleasant knitting experience. I ordered one pair of Karbonz to see if I might want to buy the set of circular interchangeables, and now there's no way I would buy any more due to the cord. Very disappointed.

                      I bought these to try out as an alternative to bamboo needles. I love my bamboo needles but they leave something to be desired when it comes to sharpness and they have a nasty habit of breaking. The Karbonz needles fix both of these issues. The metal tips are super pointy and the csrbon fiber needle is strong but still feels really good in my hands. The only con I can possibly think of is that the needle size info written on the needle itself seems to be wiping off after very little use. Over all I am beyond thrilled with these!!

                        I got the double points and the interchangable set as gifts for Yule from my sweet hub. I hate that my tension is so tight at times that I can snap wooden needles. I wanted to try these for that reason and I am in love with them. The cables could be a little more flexible in my opinion, but they aren't stiff.

                          I got these to use for a cabled sweater knitted in 1 piece which will be quite heavy in its latter stages. Light carbon fiber needles were just perfect. I had worried about the join between the metal tips and the needle body, but they are quite smooth and present no problems. Carbon fiber is as warm as wood without bending, deforming, or breaking. These needles are great.

                                I picked these up when I could no longer get this size from my primary needle source. They feel great in the hand and the point is nice and slim and long. I took off one star due to the short length of the needle. For me, another inch in length would get the needle past the heel of my hand and make my knitting more comfortable.

                                I love these needles. They are very light weight, good joints, sharp points and flexible cables. I tried Addi's but got tangled up in the cables. Knit pick needles aren't sharp enough, although the cables are more flexible. Others have complained about the joints but I am not having any problems. But I tend to knit loosely. I plan on buying others sizes. I have arthritis in my wrists and fingers and the light weight is really helpful.
