Wendy has the Knitters Pride Dreamz interchangeable sets and LOVES them. I have a couple of them in US 10.5 that I got for my current project (because they were available in the size/length combo I needed and cost less than the Addi Turbos). I'm partial to Hiya Hiya stainless circs myself, but they're not available anywhere locally, so I have to wait for them. And the whole waiting thing is something I'm not real good at.

I have no complaints about the Dreamz -- so far. Figured I'd try out a couple and see how they worked out. I did the same with the Hiya Hiyas, thinking that if I liked them I might go all in and get the interchangeable set. I'd wind up spending about the same on either one, so I might as well test drive both of 'em.
