i keep saying this, but i'll do it again: i really like my denise interchangeables. they are smooth and sharp and mine have never come apart on me. the cable is really flexible. i just don't have anything bad to say about them --and for the price ($35 on ebay, brand new), if i were a beginner i would start there. IF! i didn't care about having the smaller needles. the colors are really cool though! but, then again, the boyes are well liked and your price is excellent.
yeah, i'm no help either!
