    These are so comfortable to work with. This sounds weird but it's like they lay in the curve of my hand. The yarn slides on the tip but grabs on the body of the needle...it's like the best of both worlds. Now I wish I had bought the whole set.
    love love love these.

    I bought this to try the karbonz product line, and have to say, i am not impressed. It is nice, but much blunter than I prefer from a metal tip needle. Otherwise I like it, but I find it too expensive for what if offers.

    Upscale feel and versatile functionality

      Comments about Knitter's Pride Karbonz Interchangeable Circular Needle Tips:

      These are a fantastic all-purpose needle and feel wonderful in the hand. They are quick like metal needles but not quite as slick, so I prefer them to keep lace work from getting uncontrollably slippery. They also aren't as grabby or slow as wood. The points are just pointy enough for lace decreases but not so pointy that they split the yarn. A few needles have seemed to have the connection threads out of alignment with the cord connectors at first use, but this resolved itself with subsequent use. I'm not a huge fan of the cord or key required to attach them, but I like the needles themselves better than the ones that come with the very expensive sets. I'm one of those people who tend to wear the finish off needles, and these have held up well to heavy, regular use.

        I love the way these needles slightly grip the yarn and hold it where I need it. They are smooth and easy to use

          Comments about Knitter's Pride Karbonz Interchangeable Circular Needle Tips:

          LOVE these needles! They are super pointy & perfect for lace. I would have given them a 5 star review except one of the needles was extremely difficult to screw onto the cord. It seemed the threads weren't exactly right. I had to fiddle with it for a while, but once I finally got the 2 parts screwed together, the needle seems to be fixed & unscrews & reattaches to cords easily. I am definitely asking Santa for a full set!

            I like the feel, they have the glide of metal and the feel of a softer material. I use a ton of different needles and will definitely add these to my regular collection of 'go to' items.

            I read some reviews saying their were issues with the joins, but so far, I haven't noticed any issues.

                  Comments about Knitter's Pride Karbonz Interchangeable Circular Needle Tips:

                  For me, these are the perfect needles. They have nice sharp, smooth tips to handle those pesky knit togethers and purls through the back loop. The Carbon Fiber feels great to my arthritic hands allowing me to knit for extended times without pain or fatigue. The stitches move easily along the needle while having just the right amount of grab to keep those slinky yarns that love to try and escape safely on the needle.

                    these are great for very tight circular items, as in starting knitting in the round where the regular length of needle is just a wee bit too long. they also seem pointier than the regular length.

                        I like needle tips. They are very suitable for my knitting style. I bought two sets (short and long) to make my lace jacket. I chose them to be able to knit 5 together. I think, "Karbonz" are the best in my needles collection.
