Addi Turbo Lace circular knitting needles from Skacel are specifically designed for the needs of lace knitters. Sharper tips enable the knitter to manipulate many strands of very fine yarn (see comparison picture of the two different tips). The needles themselves are made with hollow brass with a fine resin protective coating to seal the brass and provide a hint of drag to the needle surface to allow the knitter to keep control over fine lace stitches. The coating also deadens the sound of needles hitting each other. The light blue transparent nylon cord is thinner and more flexible than standard Addi Turbos and the connection to the needles at each end is perfectly smooth and well-tapered allowing stitches to pass over the connection with no catching.
The connection between the needle and the syringe can play an important role in the selection process. Some syringe-needle combinations are detachable while others are fixed in which the needle is permanently attached to the syringe. For instance, many diabetic syringe needles are non-detachable and these type of syringe-needle combos are less expensive. More syringe and needle combinations are manufactured to be detachable, allowing more flexibility and choices between what syringe you use and what needle you attached to the syringe. There are several different types of connection hubs or syringe tips. The most popular syringe tips include Luer Lock tips, slip tips, eccentric tips and catheter tips. See Syringe & Needle Tip Selection for an infographic displaying the different types of syringe tips. Each syringe tip has a corresponding needle hub that connects with it. These connections are not interchangeable. In other words, you cannot connect a Luer Lock needle hub to a catheter tip syringe. If you purchase a slip tip syringe, you should also purchase a slip tip type needle.
