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

      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.

      Almost too slick

      By Potchke

      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.

        They really are fast

            Best Uses

              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.

                        After testing many brands despite the stiffer cable these are my very favorite for magic loop.
