using this brand...very happy I tried them...the cord is flexible from the start, the yarn glides off the needles,this has nothing to do with the performance but, I love the colors..have already purchased more of the KPDF, and will purchase more
I am relatively new to knitting and have become a bit obsessed. My friend suggested bamboo needles, and I got two different Clover brand sizes to start. Not only are they pricey, I absolutely HATE using them. The yarn does not slide off easily at all. So, I have tried a bunch of other brands, ranging from super cheap ones from Michael's I actually really like them, to Choo Choo Red Lace I also really like them and now these. These are BY FAR the best of the bunch I have tried so far. Am moving off hats and onto sweaters, so I am going to buy a longer length now, but I highly recommend!
