As a new knitter, there was no way I could escape the hype surrounding this infamous yarn. While I can't really compare this to other yarns because of my lack of experience, I will say that it has a lovely softness, especially when it is actually knitted up and it doesn't split much, if at all. You gotta love the affordability and the insane range of colors. I love it!
The needle points are light, smooth, and feel great to knit with. The stitches on the needle are held in place nicely, so I haven't had as many dropped stitches as I used to. Since the stitches stay in place, they do bunch up a little when I forget to push them along myself, but that's only a minor inconvenience. I have had stitches get caught at the joint connecting the points to the chord, but that was entirely me not screwing in the points tightly enough. Once I adjusted how tightly I was screwing the needle points in, I no longer had any issues. The chords themselves are nice and flexible, way better than the Boyd needles I was originally using. The fabric case is nicely keeps things organized and comes in pretty patterns.
Overall it's been a great experience working with this set.
