I ordered a cable & one set of tips to try the Options, while I decide if they’re the interchangeable set I want to order. Got it Friday, but only found time to use it yesterday & today.
Overall, I love it!
The tips are really nice & pointy (keep forgetting not to push the needle with my fingertip…ouch!). The tip length is comfortable, the cable is really flexible and doesn’t curl up while in use (I usually have to straighten my circs). The joins are great so far - the real test for me will be making 2 socks at once using ML, as I pull the yarn really tight on the last st to avoid ladders.
I’m extremely aware & worried about some people’s problem with the cable coming out of the metal join, so I’m consciously trying not to yank on it and hopeful quality control has improved.
Only issue I have is the tips unscrewing. What’s the point of the KP special ‘key thing’, if it doesn’t help?! It doesn’t tighten the tips like I expected it to, it’s basically just a handle to improve your grip on the join while screwing in the tip.
I even watched their little video about using it, but had to re-tighten them numerous times while working back & forth on 44sts for a couple inches. Fortunately I have a piece of that ‘rubbery’ shelf-liner that Jan recommended to tighten the tip with, and they’re not unscrewing quite so much. If this doesn’t continue to drive me nuts over the next week or so, I will order the whole set and would recommend them.
