I’m with Shelley. I am using ChiaoGoo Res Lace fixed. I get them from Mimi’s Needle Basket on Etsy and Handsome Fibers as well. The join is awesome and the cable isn’t stiff like some other brands.

Keep in mind that some brands (cough<Knitpicks>cough) have higher tolerance in their sizes—meaning that one size six needle might not be the exact same diameter as another size six.
I’ve never stressed about needle sizes, because the gauge you get with the project yarn determines the outcome.
I’ve got Knitpicks and Hiya Hiya interchangeables, but now prefer Chiaogoo fixed circulars (red lace) because of the join and the cable. Handsome Fibers
has good service and super-fast shipping, and they typically have a percent-off discount under Coupons

On Saturday, I'm going to need advice on circular
needles to buy. Does anyone have a needle gauge that is
precise? Mine is an old metal Boye(?), and my Knitpicks needle
points are too large for one size and too small for the next
Also, I'll be asking for suggestions on what
brand to get.
Thanks in advance,
