Ditto that! I like the tips of the Denise needles, and I like how quiet they are.

Ditto that! I never had an issue with the flexibility of the Denise cables. And in addition to that, I love how they attach to the needle tips. Very very easy...and no coming apart as you knit!

I will second that as well!

I have to confess, whereas I mostly use Addis, KP's and Signature Needles...I haven't given up on my Denise set. There are many times when all the others aren't quite it.

I'm a speed knitter, so for obvious reasons, metal is quicker for me...but speed isn't everything.

I have Crystal Palace bamboo set-circs, and a few miscellaneous wood set-circs...and I use them as well, when the occasion calls for it.

My Denise set is the original light grey tips with dark blue cords. It still have a place of honor in my knitting needles arsenal.

Sheldon...happy to hear that Denise has made improvements...but honestly...my set needs no improvement.
