I had seen them earlier today. I wish the Addi people had included better photos. And, closeup photos. I want TO SEE the mechanics of them before investing.
I do think they are pricey, being triple the price of a full set of Options.
Holy Cow! I was stunned that they didn't offer a competitive price.
Options will remain the mainstream favorites, I think...due to the reasonable price of the full set, and because you purchase the cables and needles separately. This allows some knitters to get just a few pieces if the full set is too much money at the time, and allows others to get additional cables and needle tips to add to their full set!
The great advantage Addi interchangeables will have is: the LYS! Up til now...Options, Denise, and Boye have had a monopoly on interchangeable circs. The LYS was stuck. The LYS could only offer straights and individual circs. Now the LYS will be able to compete in the interchangeable market! I think that is what Addi is counting on. Their LYS shop owners have prolly been crying for an interchangeable set!
I am anxious for knitpurlgurl to give us her full report (assessment) on her set of Addi interchangeables!!! :cheering:
I still love Addis for single ply yarn, and/or "splitty" yarn.
I use Addis for Malabrigo especially, and am using Addis now with my Crystal Palace "Taos" yarn. Addis work so well with splitty yarns...I'm sure you'll agree!
