      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.

      I love my Addi Turbos

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

            I have many sizes of the addi turbo sock rockets in 40" for building two socks at a time - currently toe up- and I needed a replacement for the ones I am using now because they have a slight burr at the start of one needle where the cord joins. The burr is only evident sometimes, and I have read that Addi (or someone) replaces sets like this but I am not giving these up for such a minor thing! So? I bought another set. I have built plenty of socks on my Turbos, so I know the new set will be just fine. Addi Turbo Sock Rockets are my favorite needles by far!

                Almost too slick

                Pros

                  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.

                                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.
