These are all great needle sets and it mainly comes down to which feels right in your hand. If you get a single set of points and cables from a couple of different manufactures you can try them out. Once you decide you can use the others as the second needle when knitting in the round with two needles. Or, and we know this never happens, as a backup when another must start project comes along.

I have Addi Turbos and Addi Clicks. I love them both.
The 'finish' on the Clicks needles are absolutely fabulous...and even better (yes BETTER) than the Turbos.

I have KnitPicks Options (nickel plated and Harmony wood) and love them, too!

But I must say...for any new project, I always grab my Addi Clicks first. If they don't perform well with the cables or intricate pattern stitches, then I switch to Knitpicks.

I don't have Addi Lace. I've read too much about them smelling like copper pennies after a bit of knitting. Something about that brass finish becoming smelly. Ewww. I would so totally be turned off.

another vote for the KP Options! I have the Harmonys too and love them but the Options are my favorite.

I have a denise set, a webs bamboo set, and an addi click set.

I love them all for different reasons, I always come back to using my addi set which I find ironic because when I bought it I had the most "issues" with it in the beginning. I don't like the design of the case, and felt the gold pin could have been replaced with some scissors.

I adore my Tulip crochet set (and it came with Italian scissors!).

I have not tried hiya hiya, signature or knitpicks.
