Addi Rockets are just plain faster! Rockets have:
- sharp tips of the Turbo Lace needles to easily scoop up stitches
- the slick nickel-plated surface of the original Turbos so the stitches slide easily along the tips
- pliable blue cable
- US and metric sizes stamped on the cable
- lightweight hollow brass tips under the nickel plating
The 40" length is commonly used for knitting socks using the magic loop method and for knitting adult sweaters in the round.
