    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.

          Comments about Knitter's Pride Karbonz Fixed Circular Needles 40":

          I bought these to teach myself magic loop, I found I was having trouble with my addis as they were too slippery for the first few rounds. I knit continental and am left handed so my tension is wonky at first. These are exceptional needles, flexible, strong, good joins and they are gorgeous looking in a high-tech kind of way. I love them and highly recommend these for socks or anything for that matter.

          Service and delivery comments:

          prompt delivery right into my rural mailbox, excellent packaging, no duties, no fees, no extra charges. love this company and highly recommend to fellow Canadians.

          I USED THESE NEEDLES TO KNIT A LARGE SHAWL (400+ YARDS--YOWZA SHAWL BY SUSAN B. ANDERS0N)ALL THE STITCHES FIT! THE CABLE WAS FLEXIBLE BUT I NEVER HAD TO FIGHT IT. THE POINTS ARE GREAT AND I LIKE THE FEEL OF THE NEEDLES. THEY ARE A BIT CLICKY WHEN KNITTING THOUGH.

          Comments about Knitter's Pride Karbonz Fixed Circular Needles 40":

          I wanted to try knitting socks using a 40" cable, but had difficulty finding needles with sharp enough points. These are very nearly perfect. The only problem is the black cables and dark yarn require good lighting for my aging eyes.

                        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.

                                  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.
