I'm a relatively new knitter and this was my first purchase of interchangeable needles. Great variety of needle sizes; I'm ready to go on just about any project that strikes my fancy. I really struggled to decide between the 4" and 5" set, so I first purchased one of each in a size I use frequently and knitted a couple of hats. Ultimately the 5" was most comfortable, so I went with the interchangeable set in 5" size. I've been really pleased! I don't have huge hands (I'm 5'7") but they feel really comfortable and I have plenty of needle to hold on to. I think I'd still enjoy having the 4" set at some point, because of the ability to make a 16" circular, but I've been making hats without any difficulty using magic loop, the 5" needles, and a longer cord. The needles are smooth and fast, but not so slippery that I'm dropping stitches, and the cords are fantastic. The chiaogoo cords are really what sold me on the set, as I really like magic loop for smaller circumferences. I'm happy I chose this and would buy it again.
