I have an old set of Boyes too, and yeah, they're stiff! I love the flexible cable of the KnitPicks Options set, and the Addi turbos, and the Denise set (even though they're thicker, they're very flexible!).

LongShanks, that is quite something about modifying your Boye needles to fit the Hiya Hiya!
How do the Hiya Hiya cables compare to the Knitpicks Options?

GrumpyGramma, which set from WEBS do you have? I have a bamboo set from a few years back from them, and the cables were horribly stiff. Do they have new cables on their own set, or is this another manufacturer that you bought from their store?
