I wholeheartedly agree. Everyone has their own preferences. I think I might get that Knitters Pride sampler from WEBS, just to check that out too. Of course, I could be giving myself too many options to make a decision.
Boy, do I hear you there! I finally decided which features mattered most to me and the tapered points on the wooden needles were the main deciding feature. That's where having a metal and wooden set in the same size came in really handy. After that the colors or other features fell into place in an acceptable manner. I liked the lighter color of the Sunstrucks as it's easier to see most colors of yarn against them.

Cheating is an option. . . . Cheaters never win and winners never cheat, but smart knitters who want to retain an iota of sanity do, cheerfully. ~~Kory Stamper
