Knitter's Pride Nova Fixed Circular Needles have a flexible cable and nickel plated brass tips that have a great point and are speedy to knit with. The smooth join enables stitches to glide freely from cable to needle without snagging. In addition, the needle size is etched on the connector for easy spotting. These needles are also available in 16", 24", 32" and 40" lengths.

This line is a recent addition at WEBS. It's not a bad needle-and is made in many sizes and lengths. These are not comparable to an Addi Turbo.I find the cable is a bit to stiff and inflexible for 2AAT socks, but for a sweater or wrap, it is perfect. I found that the needle itself is short-hard to use if you have long hands. The needle join is nice and is available in a wide range of lengths. It is also very reasonably priced compared to the Addi Turbo. The in store availabilty of the sizes isn't that great. Many of the larger needles (including size 7) had empty hooks. I would recommend that you try a pair.

I purchased a size US 2 @ 47 inch long for very fine weight shawls On the size 2 the needle shaft join is not smoothly enough connected to the wire..its just an open circlet of metal with a larger circumference than the wire, which snags and prevents smooth moving forward of the still on the wire stitches. In fairness (unless you spend $10++ per pair for the very high end) this is almost always a problem on US4 or less circs- the joins are nearly always 'off' in some way that prevents easy movement of stitches just because they are so small and tight along the wire. The cord is great, nice and flexible. The larger sizes I have of these are fine and I'd recommend them in any size larger than a US 3.
Comments about Knitter's Pride Nova Fixed Circular Needles 47":
I ordered these needles to make a heavy woolen afghan and do not care to use straight needles. The cables do not buckle as longer cables can be inclined to do. Further the needles are slick and increase speed. A great prodouct - no complaints!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
