Yes, GG, the points on the Addis are a bit blunt. I noticed that they are making a lace Addi Click set, and I'm sure the needles are pointier (that's probably not a word, but I can't think of a better word right now!) But, at the cost of Addis, I don't think I'd want to invest in two sets! I think there are a lot of other needle options today that were not there when I went back to knitting six or seven years ago. Like, Jan, I don't find the screw-on cables to be a big problem. Everyone seems to have a strong opinion about needles. I think it's largely a matter of personal preference. For me, I think the "perfect"
needle set would be KP Harmonies combined with Addi Click connectors.
