Have them all
I reviewed (and used) a number of different needles before I bought the entire series of HiyaHiya needles. I am convinced I made the right choice for me. I like them much better than wooden needles and the points work better for me than other stainless steel needles. I found that I struggle with the Addi points because my stitches are tighter. The swivel cables are AWESOME and I don't need a special tool to tighten the needles to the cables. For the price, you can't go wrong.

If you want interchangeable needles, get these.
Bought these to replace my Addi Click needles. The join on these is SO SMOOTH, compared to the Addis. Also, I appreciate that the cords swivel, so they don't get all curled up. I love these and will pick up the Large ones soon.

Hiya Hiya all the way
I have tried the 4 inch hiya hiya sharps and the Chiaogoo red Lace 5 inch..
The 4 inch are really small to me. I am 5 11 and have what my hubby calls man hands. lol So I like the 5 inch. I hated the Chiaogoo red cable, it is stiffer than knit picks….but some like that more. I love how the hiya hiya cable twist like signature needles… The hiya hiya is also a nylon cable and great for magic loopers like myself. They are very pointy but the chiaogoos have a long pointy area… I found this blog review helpful ~ [...]... …. I also need to point out that hiya hiyas now offer a cable with a lifeline hole. The large set I ordered came with the older cables and the small set I ordered came with the new cords with the lifeline… another important factor is what size of circular needle you actually get with different size needles. For instance….. with 4 inch tips the 9.5 inch cable makes a 16 inch circular needle but if you use the 5 inch tips it makes it a 18 inch needle… that info can be found here [...]...
I hope this helps and if there is any more info you think I can offer you message me and I will do what I can to help you :)

Best knitting needles EVER!
Seriously, these are the BEST knitting needles I have ever had! I got frustrated with other interchangeables because I was constantly having to re-tighten them, but I've done 3 different projects on these now and only had to re-tighten once during each project! Plus, the joins are sooooo smooth! No snagging at all! I love them!!! I'm going to be ordering the bigger size needle set now and getting rid of all my other needles!

Companion to my large Hiya Hiya Interchangeable
I received the large Interchangeable Knitting needles in 2012 and had to have the smaller size. I love these needles because they allow me to work faster with better accuracy with fewer split yarns. Finally, the package is great for slipping into your bag so you are never without the size you need. I love this product.

Great needles for beginners
Just received these needles and I am super impressed. The packaging was accurately depicted and the needles are great. I'm a fairly new knitter and while I consider my self a quick knitter, these needles help me knit that much faster. Magic loop on these are excellent and I will likely not return to DPNs. I was concerned with the sharpness of the tip but my concerns have been allayed. They are sharp enough to get into stitches easily and provide a clean finish but not sharp enough to puncture or hurt you if you use your fingers like I do to push on the needle like I do. If you are considering interchangeable needles, I highly recommend these. The cables are so easy to attach and detach from the tips and they don't come lose or snag your yarn at the joints. I didn't even use the grippers to tighten them and I had no issues with them coming loose. I am happy with these needles. Just a word of warning, I thought they would be shinier than they actually are.

I've had these needles for about a year and I still love them like the day I received them! The 4-inch are very small, so people with average/larger hands might want to size up, but I have small hands so they work perfectly for me. The case they came in is very nice and has held up well so far. The only time the connectors have come unscrewed while knitting is if I didn't initially tighten it enough. The swivel feature is by far the best thing about this set, because it prevents the cables from going all crazy while I'm knitting. Magic Loop method is also really easy on these needles. The join is pretty smooth, although it's never going to be perfect on interchangeables. I get snags here and there but it's mostly when I'm using the Magic Loop method, because I tend to knit tight. If you're shopping around for an interchangeable set, this one is great! Just make sure you get the 5-inch if you have a problem with small needles!

I love my HiyaHiya needles.
I love my needle set. I had one that was really rough. I ended up sending it back but the company was very responsive and promptly replaced the cable. The needles are really, really sharp and I find that I have to use a thimble or use a rubber cover on my finger. I think if I had to do it again, I would buy the bamboo needles.

Knitting Life Changing!
This changed changed my knitting life!
There is no sacrifice in the quality of the needles for the function. These work as well as I would expect from any needle with the ability to change lengths and needles at any time.
One of the most amazing features is the versatility of the cords. I love being able to take the needles off and leave the project on a cord to come back to! Although now I want a stockpile of cords. I love being able to switch needle size mid-project. So many benefits.
They come in a lovely carrying case with even a place to store the cords. It makes this set even better. It also makes it a lovely touch for a gift.
