I just got some Susan Bates Silvalume circs and I'm having some problems. Normally I don't have any difficulty sliding stitches from the cable to the needle, but these seem to be giving me a hard time. Does anyone else have this problem? Any recommendations?

I've had the same problem. Some Susan Bates needles have a little bend in them right where they join to the cord. I think it makes the transition from cord to needle a bit clunky. Sometimes my yarn also gets caught up right at the joint because there isn't a smooth connection.
My circular needle brand of choice is Addi Turbo.

Awesome, will keep that in mind. I've sort of developed a way to get most of the stitches around that little catch, but I still have to pull the last few over individually. It's not so bad, but I'll be picking up some Addi when I next venture to the yarn store. Smiley Thanks much!

Love Addis, but my pocketbook does not, LOL.
I've come to like Knitpicks circulars, and they are really reasonable.
I've seen others online recommend Hiya Hiya brand, but have
not gotten my hands on those yet.
Happy knitting!
