          I have recently started knitting socks and mitts using two cirular needles rather than four or five DPNs, and the Karbonz have made this a WONDERFUL knitting experience. The needle shafts are light and warm to the touch. They have the very slightest (almost unnoticeable, really) flex to them which makes them much more comfortable than metal needles. And for someone like me--who holds her needles with a death-grip--I don't have to worry about snapping small-gauge US 0s or 1s as I would with wooden ones.

          The join between the needle and cable is very smooth compared to other circs, but is not yet perfect. (When someone gets that to be perfectly seamless, they will make countless knitters very happy.) As far as the cable itself, I will have to knit something heavier, such as a shawl or cowl, before I can give it a complete thumbs-up. But for small projects, it is okay. It could be a little stiffer so that it doesn't bend when those oncoming stitches don't slide right over onto the join.

          Overall, though, I am very pleased with these needles and have expanded my collection into the larger sizes.

          I wanted to like these needles because they did make knitting progress easily and steadily. But they were so heavy my wrists ached after just a few rounds and they clicked loudly like the aluminum needles of my childhood. Finally, I got a very metallic taste in my mouth while using these needles. Needless to say they were a disappointment

            I purchased the fixed needle to see how I liked them. I liked them so well, I purchased the Deluxe Kit. I absolutely love them. So easy to knit with. Lightweight, slides through the yarn, but not slippery.

                  this is a con...and a pro. I love the needles but I need the needles in circular to be as small as the needles in the double point. Actually I wish both went as small at 0000. I use 0000 a lot and 00 even more. I do large shawls in fine gossamer lace and obviously double points are hard to use and single points that small will never exist (I alter double points to make them singles) The best solution would be 0000, 000, 00, in circulars. Can this ever happen? I would be over joyed.

                    I keep coming back to purchase these needles in several sizes and lengths. They do seem to make a difference in how even the finished product looks. I recommend them without hesitation.

                                  Most of my circular needles are Addi Turbos which I like very much. I have wanted to try the Karbonz since they were first available. My personal needle selection does not include any needles larger than US 8, and I needed US 9 for a project. Well, it was a good excuse to buy some Knitter's Pride Karbonz. They are smooth, sharp pointed, and have a cable with good flexibility, but not like a wet noodle. In short, I don't have any logical reason not to like them, just a personal preference. They don't have the right heft for me, and the needles feel dry and grabby. Those qualities are simply not what was required for the project I have tried them on. I will keep an open mind and continue to swatch with them. Perhaps, I may decide that I really like these qualities in the future.

                                    I tried these needles size 1 (2.25mm) for sock knitting. I find I break wooden needles both in use and in neglect (soft bag getting stepped on), and I bend metal needles. These needles don't bend or break.

                                    The transition between needle and point or cable could be a slight bit smoother, but it is not bad.

                                    I liked the first set so well I bought a second set.
