I just bought a couple of Knitpicks Harmony tips and cables, and I love them! The cables are by far the best I've ever worked with - all the others I have kink something awful, even Addis, and it's a pain to keep dipping them in the teakettle. Plus I've decided I don't care for metal needles or dull tips, so the pointy wooden ones suit me fine. I think it's a matter of playing around with a lot of needles and finding out what you like.
...knitting well is the best revenge!
