Inox 6 in. DPN's are still my favorite. Lightwt. for a metal needle and not too long. They also come in a 2.5 mm size (US 1.5). I use the 2.5 mm for the cuff and a 2.0 mm (US 0) for the heel and foot. On fingering wt. yarn this puts me around 8 st./inch for the cuff and around 9.5 for the foot. If I need a 2.25 mm (US 1) needle, I've been using the Pony Pearls. Also quite nice.
