What I also like about the Addis that I haven't found with any other needle out there is the smooth join of the cable to the needle. The bamboo circulars out there that I've used are typically very good too, although sometimes I don't want to use bamboo based on the type of fiber I'm using. I think that the Addis are faster to knit with and are good quality. The only problem is that if the yarn seems a bit "slippery" on the Addi needles, you can drop stitches easier (well, at least this happens to me, maybe not everybody else :oops: )
Yikes! This is the first time I'm ordering from Jeff, so I didn't know what to expect. I've been waiting patiently for my Addis to come, and I still haven't received them! :shock: I figured I'd try to be more patient because there was the Christmas, New Year's, and MLK holidays in there when we didn't have postal service, but I'm getting antsy. I ordered them on December 21. I figured I'd give him a month, and if I still haven't gotten them, then I was going to start inquiring hard. Thanks for the heads up, jmp!
