I haven't used a bent tip needle before and I'm finding it very handy. But, the really great thing about this product is the case. I've tried to keep my needles in one place, but I've had a hard time. The screw-on cover and easy to find case makes it possible to keep my needles in my little knitting ditty bag while still being able to find them and not having them poke through the bag.
Going through security I had my last Clover case broken. They let me keep the needles, which I thought was intereting, but broke the case. Love the jumbo needles and new jumbo case! I will check these with my baggage!!
