Did you decide already? It looks like the tips are under $5/pr. http://www.knitdenise.com/products/needles

I use mine sometimes but they are not my preferred needles. Their customer service is great, even I can't find a reason to complain about it. I wish I'd gotten mine for $8!

Look they're not the 'bee's knees' but they are nice to knit with. I bought the rainbow set ... took far too long for them to process my order and deliver, but hey, the USA is renowned for very poor postal service.

I have them and enjoy using them for some projects. I have used them for magic loop and they are not the best for that. For other projects they are fine. One advantage to them is that they are easier on your hands.
My favorite for lace and magic loop are the Chiao Goo needles I bought here.

The needles are nice and sharp, the joins are sturdy and the cable is supple. They were recommended in a Ravelry lace group I belong to.
Note-I just noticed they have an interchangeable set for sale and I have not tried those. I've tried the individual needles.

I've changed my mind - I just LOVE these needles the more I use 'em.

besides - a purchase of them helps keep THIS wonderful place up and running.

what do you find you like about the Denise?

I got my Sunstruck Needles a couple of weeks ago and they seem to be just like the Harmony but also next time I place an order I will get a couple of the Nickle Plated. I just used the trial size 7 NP to make a hat and found that I now really like them. They seemed too slick at first when I tried to use them for another project but now with more experience behind me I really like them.

Yeah, I love my nickel plated.

Denise were nicely made needles and the connection is cool, but I didn't like the cable or needle material.

I assume the question was directed to me, so: I love the feel of them, they have a nice amount of give and the connection is really well thought out and engineered.
