        I pre-ordered these needles some time back and just recently received a pair of size 4, 32" circulars. These are amazing needles. They are comfortable to use, not too slick but the yarn moves across the needles quite easily. The needles look a lot more expensive than they are, with very pretty nickle plated tips, very clear size labeling on the needle and on the metal. I had worked in the aerospace industry and was familar with carbon fiber, but couldn't imagine this was really going to be a good idea. I had to try them anyhow, and really, I am glad I did. I love these so much I ordered another size (2s) and already have them in hand. I'm hoping for an interchangeable set. I will definitely want to purchase more of these.

        I'm pretty shocked at the amount of good reviews on this one, maybe because it's so new. I recently received these and they catch HORRIBLY not only at the join with the cable, but more importantly, where the nickle tip meets the carbon shaft. I knit English and this just does not work for me. Every time I insert the needle, the yarn catches at the tip and I have to force it through. Knitters Pride customer service is pretty much non existant. Never again.

          I like these a lot because they have the right amount of hold on the yarn. Not too slippery so the work doesn't come off but not a sticky feeling either.

          Comments about Knitter's Pride Karbonz Fixed Circular Needles 32":

          I bought these in very small diameters specifically for knitting socks by magic loop. They are great for this and it was a pleasure to knit with them. The cables were nice and flexible and the needles had a lovely wood feel to them but with the strength of a metal. The strength of the needles is nice since the bamboo needles I tried in 2.00mm and 2.25mm are too flexible and fragile for my liking. It would be nicer if these were a bit cheaper, but I only needed these sizes so for a few sets, it's not a big deal. I have interchangeables for everything else.

              I bought these in a US 2 to knit a shawl using a very fine 2-ply silk/merino blend. They work very well. They are comfortable with enough length in the needle part to grip it easily. That has been a problem for me with another high-end brand of circs in the lower numbers with such short little needles that I could barely grasp my knitting! These are nicely proportioned for me - I have rather large hands. These also have a warm feel despite not being wood which is what I usually prefer to buy. The seam between the metal tip and the carbon fiber is quite smooth - certainly it has not been a problem for me in the slide of my knitting. Occasionally I see a stitch briefly hesitate at the join but nothing that has snagged or interrupted my knitting to date. And, the price is right! Buy them, I think you'll like them.

                  These were the first pair of Karnonz that I have used. There were no problems with the joins and the yarn moves smoothly over the needles. I've always used Addi needles, but thought I would try something new. I really enjoy knitting with the Karbonz.

                    These needles are slippery enough for the stitches to slide easily, but they don't fall off. They are very light, and they feel good in my hands. I've been using both the circs and the straights with a variety of yarns, and I like them even better than the nickel-plated needles that were my former favorites.

                          On my third pair of socks and love the nice sharp points. Good strong shaft on needles. Better slide than I expected from reading other reviews, the cord could be a little softer with a bit more flex, as I have to "unwind" it occasionally.

                            I have been using my Karbonz fixed circular 32" for a lace project. I am knitting the Sharon Miller Christening Robe. I actually started with my Turbo Sock Rockets 32" but prefer these hands down. Don't get me wrong, I love all of my Turbo Addi's (I own all the metal kinds), but these really are wonderful. They are so light in your hands, and I love the feel of them. They have a smooth quality. I have noticed that it is imprtant to make sure you have taken the time to tighten the needle to the wire well but this has not been a dissaster for me. I noticed that all of the sudden my work was getting "stuck" and I noticed that the join was unscrewing from the wire…it does not just all of the sudden come off. This is one area I totally prefer my addis because their click join is superior. Also, I must say, that of all my woderful knitting needles, I love the wire of the knit picks as it is the softest and most relaxed. The Chiao Goo has a nice wire too. You will not be dissapointed with this product.
