      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.

          Almost too slick

          By Potchke

          from Santa Barbara, CA

          Pros

          • Smooth Cable Joins
          • Supple Cable

          Cons

          • Almost Too Slick

          Best Uses

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

            I love how easy it is to move my stitches up past the cable join. That's where the "rocket" name come from. My complaints are really very small: the tip taper is shorter than on the KnitPicks needles, so fancy stitches are a little harder. Nothing I can't get used to.

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

                  I used these to make socks. The join is excellent, doesn't catch on the wool at all, and the cable is flexible and strong. The tips are slick and sharp. They are wonderful and I'm buying more of them. The only problem I had was my own fault: my daughter stepped on the needle getting out of the car and bent it nearly in half. I bent it back into shape, but the needle is crimped in the middle now.

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  Arrived in great condition, well packed, and quickly. More quickly than usual.

                        These needles are fantastic. They make knitting socks a breeze. Very smooth and slick surfaces. Easy transition from the cable to the needle, no snagging of yarn. Would love if Addi made "Rockets" in more sizes and lengths. Great needle for speedy knitting.

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

                          I am using these to make a top-down sweater, and they work great. I especially appreciate the sharp needle tips, as the yarn is very loosely plied, and there has been much less ply splitting since I changed to these from my old blunt ones.

                            Great for socks and lace the like. Length good for these projects. Yarn doesn't get stuck when going from needle to cable-even flow of yarn.
