5.0 out of 5 stars Good product, 30 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Again, a great product from this company - I tried to order the metal ones but they would not deliver to Ireland, however given the wonderful action of the wood I am happy to have them. Hopefully they will last as long as the metal ones would have, I'll just have to wait and see. I know my US set that is similar is over 12 years old and is still going, except a few of the needles have worn down or bent, nothing lasts forever but a decade of hard use i a good sign. These needles work on exactly the same principle as my US set (different brand) with the key and whole locking method. A nice touch was a new key with each cord size, which is much better than the one key that came with my US set that I'm always in danger of loosing.

Again, my only real gripes are similar to the one I had with the sock needles, with the sock needles I wish the manufacturer had larger sizes in the sock needle set (5 inches) in this case I wish the circular interchangeable needles went down to at least a size 2. My old US set did this (the updated version no longer does which is why I didn't bother ordering it from the US) and I found I used the smallest needles the most to make baby clothing and I really miss having this option. As it stands, I ended up order a couple of sets of very cheap round needles that did cover the smaller sizes in 16 inches and 24 inch sizes. If they had been in this set, I would not have bothered to do so.

Also, the manufacturer for unknown reasons does not include the 16 inch needle cord in this "Pro" set and you have to order it as a single item. Since sweaters are one of the most common things knitting in the round, a 16 inch needle is critical for sleeves, also for knitting most hats and many baby clothes. To not include this option I thought was rather silly, given how many people knit mostly hats and sweaters these days.

But a wish for more, does not take away a fifth star from a five star product, rather it just sends a hint to the manufacturer for improvements when they do their product designs.

Will recommend to all my friends...
