I bought the Rockets only because Webs seemed to carry these exclusively in the size I was looking for, as opposed to Addi Turbos. So I bought them thinking "whatever how much difference could a little tweaking to the tips make". Oh man huge difference. These needles are amazing. If there were such a thing as "professional grade" knitting needles, these would be it. Smoothest, lightest needles I've ever worked with, and the longer, pointier tips DO make a difference in the speed and hand-effort required to get the work done. Just perfect.

The only reason I am giving 2 stars is because I got what I ordered. Other than that I was not happy. I ordered 2 sets of needles and each pack had a bent needle. The size 00 needles should have been packaged so damage would have been prevented. The bubble envelope that was used was not enough support. A piece of cardboard in the envelope would have done the trick. I'm not sure I would order needles from them again.

          Comments about Skacel addi Turbo Sock Rockets 40" Circular Needles:

          I must have missed these when they first came out. Was at WEBS looking around and saw them. Since I already use Addi Turbos and have made many socks with them, I thought, "What difference can these possibly make?" But eventually I bought these Rocket needles and found out. WOW. They make a huge difference--the cable is better, the sliding past the join is better, and for reasons I cannot see, the tips are better (altho they look the same, they seem to work differently). I am able to knit faster and more evenly on my socks. I'm impressed. Would recommend these for sure. Will be buying another pair.

                        The difference between Skacel and other brands is the cable. Skacel
                        Is the best!

                              I have many sizes of the addi turbo sock rockets in 40" for building two socks at a time - currently toe up- and I needed a replacement for the ones I am using now because they have a slight burr at the start of one needle where the cord joins. The burr is only evident sometimes, and I have read that Addi (or someone) replaces sets like this but I am not giving these up for such a minor thing! So? I bought another set. I have built plenty of socks on my Turbos, so I know the new set will be just fine. Addi Turbo Sock Rockets are my favorite needles by far!
