I was going to buy a pair of those Susan Bates once but I looked closely and their joins didn't seem very smooth. Maybe it was just a bad batch of needles?

Let us know how they are, Craw. I thought about ordering one set of tips, too, but I don't really need any new needles right now so I can wait a while to see what the reviews have to say.
