The purchase was initially to make socks on two circulars rather than dps or magic loop. But secondly I made a winter hat using one 16-inch and went to two during the decreases. Yarn moves swiftly over the needles for quicker knitting. I bought them because they were a new style and was very pleased with the results. I recommended these to a friend and she bought them as well but hasn't used them yet.

I so wanted to love these needles, as I knit a lot of socks with Size 0/1, and wanted something I wouldn't have to worry about breaking. I love the carbon fiber material (warm), and the cords are really nice as they don't hold a curled shape and have a good solid feel. Unfortunately, as is the case with most small-sized needles, the joins snagged. Specifically, one had good joins, while the other snagged (I had bought 2 sets), so I'm thinking its a quality control problem.
As usual, Webs was happy to take the return and followed through with the banking expeditiously.

        Pros

        • A pleasure to knit with
        • Like Steel Tips

        Cons

        • 1 Tip Join Not 100
        • But not a problem

        Best Uses

        • Circ Work Few Stitches

        Comments about true Karbonz Fixed Circular Needles 16"":

        Useful when stitches are reduced but these needles still take a large number of stitches with finer yarn. They are smooth to work with - the only hitch on my ones is that one of the steel tips (which I also like by the way) is not joined 100% smoothly but it is a very minor hitch and doesn't detract from the pleasure of knitting with these needles.

            I am a master knitter and am always trying different needles. These are wonderful for socks using 2 circular at a time. The yarn doesn't snag on the transitions from tip to flexible wire.

              good circular needles

              Comments about true Karbonz Fixed Circular Needles 16"":

              these are well made needle. i like the carbon fiber feel...it offers good tactile control surface for your finger pads. the metal points are sharp...i actually made my right fingertip bleed, until i realized that. that is my only negative comment. it isnt a reason not to buy them....but if you have a heavy controlling hand...be aware.
