well the ones i have are flex shaft...basically they have points like a circular needle so they fit in the hand nicely but the rest of the shaft is like a circular needle cable with a stopper at the end. They are good for the person who likes knitting with straight needles but wants that flexible shaft for comfort. i haven't used mine in about a year because i just do the circular needles. They work great though....except for the constant dropping of the needle!

You don't knit in the round with them. They just allow you to hold lots of stitches on them without having a circular needle.
