16 in is most commonly used for hats. For sweaters and other items the other sizes are fine. I was disappointed, but decided I'd just buy Addi's for the 16 in size.

Oh and the Options single sets do have a 16 in, but the needle size only goes up to 3 which won't work with worsted which is probably used for most hats.

The big deal is that their cords are soooo flexible, you can do magic loop with them easier than other sets. The other thing is the tips are pointy so lacework is easier, and I'm sure those who bought them have another half dozen reasons why they're so kewl.

It can be a little difficult starting out, like dpns, but it's easier once you have some length to your project.
