I dont have them.. but the experienced knitters say they knit up SUPER quick and are super slick...
Are you a newbie or experienced knitter?

They are super quick & slick! Their points are not as pointy as the new KP Options, but they have a wider variety of cable lengths. I use the Options more but love the Addi's for other projects!

They are VERY slippery and fast. I would not recomend them if you're a beginner, though, or the KnitPicks Options, which are as slippery. I love them, and they are the only needles I have besides my knipicks set.

They are probably the best made needles as far as quality goes. If you ever have any problem with them the company will replace them. The only problem with them (if you consider it a problem--some people don't) is that the tips are very blunt. This is fine for most types of knitting but I find it better to have sharper tips because I do a lot of lace knitting. I also like pointy needles for sock knitting.
