I bet my stash
that they are the same needle
with the exception those few aesthetic differences!
I like WEBS version, too, however IMHO...KnitPicks
is still the company to deal with because of
their excellent customer service.
I'm not knocking WEBS, but you just cannot beat KnitPicks for taking care of even the smallest issues that arise...and they take care of your issue immediately, no questions asked, no fuss, no muss!
Is WEBS gonna send you a replacement cable? Or replace any 1 piece of your set? They might take back the entire set...but I don't think they're set up to deal with "parts" issues. It's all or nothing.
In my book, KnitPicks rocks!
