Addi Turbo Circular Needles

We call the Addi Turbo brand needles "the Cadillac of needles". In other words they are the needles you choose for a little luxury. Designed in Germany with precision engineering , Addi is the gold standard for knitting needles. Are they lightweight? Yes! Addi Turbos are hollow brass with a coating of white bronze so they are very light. They also boast that knitters will knit faster with Addi Turbos - that's why they call them "turbo" doncha know! This brag has the ring of truth. The slick surface of these needles means that stitches can travel at a lightning pace. The joins between the cord and the needle are top of the line and leave others in the dust. The cord is also the best - strong, flexible, never coiling or kinking. Did I mention the lifetime guarantee?
Metal needles are excellent for experienced knitters or tight knitters.
Standard Addi Turbo Needles come with a blunt tip - great for those who push on their needle tips while they knit, but there is also a sharp tipped version. These are called Rockets, shown in the picture on the left. 

Choose your circular needles based on size and also length. In general, 40cm/16" lengths are good for hats, short cowls and new born pullovers, use 60cm/24" lengths for child size pullovers, use 80cm/32cm lengths for long cowls, adult pullovers, and blankets, 80cm/32" and 100cm/40" are the best for using the magic loop knitting technique.
Tips for the 40cm/16" needles are 9cm/3.5" long and the longer lengths come with a 12.5cm/5" long tip. Both are very comfortable to use.
Warning, once you try Turbo you may never go back.
