The Lace Click tips were created to be shorter in length (3.5"), to allow for both 16" and 20" applications. While the 24", 32", and 40" cords from both the regular and lace sets are fully compatible with any style of tip, the new 16" and 20" cords are not compatible with the regular Turbo tips.

I recently started lace knitting and am loving my new addi lace needles. I also own the original and I can say that I LOVE LOVE LOVE both sets!!! It's a joy to knit with these needles. No worries about the cord coming apart!!!
I am slowly building my interchangeable set and Addi makes it easy by being able to purchase just what is needed. The Addi's are smooth. Sometimes the part where the two pieces connect get stuck on the yarn but just push the yarn and it's fine.
I have a whole set of Addi clicks but needed another set of tips. I love them - can't say enough good things. The tips are just sharp enough and the joints with the cords allow for the yarn to slip smoothly along. Will buy again.
