I'm not sure it's totally accurate to say they have NO memory but the cables for the Knit Picks and Knitters Pride needles are very flexible and don't need to be bathed in scalding water before use. I like them. I have one set of the Cubics and personally prefer the round needles. Square or round, like anything else about needles, is totally a personal preference.
