With the Z's, I understand the "stickiness" issue when using inexpensive acrylic yarn.
I have other acrylic needles and generally like them, but when I do work with older acrylic yarn that's been used and reused a lot for sample knitting, the sts don't slide so well. Not as much a problem when using fresh yarn.

Most people do use the word 'sticky' when referring to less slick needles. They're good for slippery yarns.
