I have both sets, and I like the Options better. I do still use the Boyes occassionally though. I also do have a pretty bad nickel allergy, but knitting with nickel plated needles has never been a probelm for me.
HTH!

Wow, thanks for your input, everyone. I'll keep an eye on the sales at Hobby Lobby and see if the Boye needles go on sale anytime soon. Otherwise I might order Options, because I do feel that they would be better long-term as long as they don't bother my hands. If I get Options, I probably will get a combination of metal and wood needles.
