OK, everyone. Just purchased my 1st Addi turbos, 24-inch size 8 circulars at LYS. Couldn't resist. Wanted to be sure I knew what I was talking about in comparison to Susan Bates Silvalume circulars.
The Addis feel great in my hands...only slightly better than Susan Bates.
The Addis make a little more clinking sound than Susan Bates.
The Addis may be slightly faster than Susan Bates.
Don't know if the bend in the Susan Bates needles is more helpful or not. The Addis have no bend. Will have to wait until I'm working on a larger project.
I probably have just about all the needles I need except 12s and 16s. Will I buy more Addis? Not sure. I can get the Susan Bates locally....no waiting, no shipping charges, don't have to add to my credit card balance, and sometimes Ben Franklin has coupons for 40% off or $3.00 off on purchases.
The Addis can be purchased locally, but not at as good a price as Jeff on Ebay....but the packages avaliable locally say Addi Turbo, the ones at Jeff's do not.
