I mostly have Clover Bamboo DPNs. I bought a set of Brittanys from my LYS for the same reason--they only carried the size I needed with the Brittany's. I didn't care for them much. I haven't tried Crystal Palace, but I love the Clover needles. They do "stick" to the yarn somewhat too, but I like that because when I'm using DPNs on metal needles, I always ended up having one slide out of the stitches.
