I have to admit, I really like the way the Novas attach to the cable too- it is a very VERY smooth transition.
The tips are pleasant, not TOO sharp, but not super blunt either. A good mid range for many types of patterns and yarn.
They are very nice to use on yarn with more of a toothy bite to keep the stitches sliding along pleasantly, and do feel good in my hands as well. I wouldn't use them with something super slick, as they ARE so nicely polished and slippery since it might be too challenging.
I am a brand new knitter, and these needles are really comfortable to work with. I had no problems while working with them other than the fact that they got a little bit scratched around the tip from repeated use. These would a really good addition to your collection.
