Saw them in a yarn store while on vacation a couple weeks ago, had to buy one to see if they really deserve all the hype. Already own KP Options interchangeables, so bought a 40" size 0 circ for 2 at a time, toe-up socks.
Very first impression (compared to the bamboo size 2 needle I was using) was WOW! This Addi feels so light, the cable is amazing, the join...what join?!
Now that I finished the original socks on the bamboo and started a new pair with the Addi, it doesn't seem quite so special. Yeah, the join & cable are still incredible and it's such a lightweight needle. But I could have used pointier ends more than once. (While they had a decent selection of Addis, they didn't have the pointier Addi lace.) So I don't know if I'm "knitting faster" like the pkg claims. The store didn't have Addi clicks, though they had a few cables & larger sized needles to buy separately. Would have liked to try them, but now know I made the right decision for me with the Options, since I like pointy needles. Guess I'll need to buy an Addi lace next.
If you need your needles to be a little pointier, Addi sells a lace version of its needles that are essentially the same only the points are pointier and the slope to the full thickness is a little longer.
