I think cable needles are highly overrated, especially the ones shaped like a J. They're fine for holding the stitches aside while you work the crossover, but a plain dpn makes it much easier to slip those stitches back onto the regular needle without wrestling them past the J-curve. For that matter, many people don't bother with cable needles at all, unless the cables are very wide or the yarn very slippery.
