RED Lace surgical stainless steel circulars have a smooth, satin-sheen finish and memory-free, multi-strand, steel, nylon-coated, red cable. Lace tips are machine-precisioned. Needle size is laser imprinted on each circular.

Biscotte Yarns offers you the CHIAOGOO ORIGINALS: beware of the Counterfeits !
I’m with Carol on the size labelling—but then again, the size printing on all my needles is very hard to read no matter the manufacturer. I’d like to see a size-based color-coding system. Other than that, I disagree on the finish. I’d trade my Addi sock rockets for these ChaioGoo needles any day. The coup d’grace is the cable though. The no-memory aspect of the ChaioGoo plus the incredibly smooth joins won me over the first pair of socks I knit. Love these!
ChiaoGoo Red Lace Circular Knitting Needles 40" (100cm)
I tried them on a cotton blend sock yarn and the needles and the cords were too sticky. Nothing would slide. Then I tried a wool blend sock yarn and there was a big difference. Nice and slippery. The cords are very flexible, which makes them great for two at a time magic loop. The tips are sharper than Addi turbo sock rockets, so great for lace. I prefer the coating on the Addi turbo sock rockets over the stainless steel ChiaoGoo's. The joins are smoother on the ChiaoGoo's. The labeling is so indistinct I don't know how anyone could read it. So I'll give them 4 out of 5 stars.
Thank you Carol for this detailed and helpful review ♥
I love these needles. The tips are sharp, The joins are smooth and the cable is weighty enough that they (and any knitting in them) aren’t flying around as you knit.
