60+ years of knitting and I am slowly getting rid of all but my Knitters Pride needles. Not a fan of interchangeable sets, I fixed needles.
Knitters Pride are smooth, not too slippery, but not grabby like bamboo. The points are long, ending in a fine tip, allowing you to move your work onto the tip and making ease of knitting stitches together, etc. When using cotton fibler, there is no substitution for Knitters Pride
