Susan Bates Silvalume Circular Knitting Needles 16" is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality of Susan Bates knitting needles Not happy with these knitting needles at all. Stitches do not glide onto the needle & I'm constantly pushing stitches onto the needle. It's really a struggle using these needles. I've always been happy with Susan Bates products but don't have anything nice to say about these circular needles. Not able to use them at all. Very disappointed in the quality.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very frustrating!! Wish I had seen these reviews before I bought the needles! I have Susan Bates, Quicksilver, 16", size 9 circular needles and the point came off the cable after only 3 rows of knitting with super bulky yarn! I bought online....a nuisance to return and get refund. I have bought and used lots of Susan Bates knitting needles and have never had this problem. I would not recommend these needles to anyone. I have no problem with Joann.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smarter Purchase I bought three sets of these needles in three different sizes. In past I had bamboo ones which broke. I'm thoroughly pleased with my decision to purchase these. Only wished I had bought them in first place.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Needles The Susan Bates Silvalume have points that are not too sharp, but nicely tapered. They work well with worsted weight yarn. The one downside is a pinched spot just above the join that tends to catch when moving the yarn. The join itself is nice and smooth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice needles I got these needles for some kids winter hats (DMC Top This!) I will be working on for Christmas gifts later this year. They look pretty cool, and I look forward to working with them shortly. Thanks!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Breaking I have these in US 11. As other reviewers said, the cable keeps coming disconnected. I've noticed it getting worse as I get further along in the project. I'm knitting a fairly heavy blanket, so the weight may be the problem. Either way, as a new knitter I didn't want to spend a ton of money on needles until I knew I wanted to continue knitting. But, in this case it seems you get what you pay for. I may try gluing them to finish this project, but I'm seriously considering looking for a better pair or possibly an interchangeable set. I suppose they've served their purpose in that now I know it's worth buying a better set, but it's frustrating to spend the money and not even be able to finish a project on them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love These I have never had a problem with the cables coming off the needle, as other reviewers describe. I love the point on these. The material of the needles allows for fast knitting. I have these in several sizes and have never had a problem.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from plastic cable comes off the needle I just began a knitting project requiring the size 15 circular and not too far into the knitting did the plastic cable come off the needle...I put it back on but it has continued to pull off as I knit....I cannot finish the project with this needle.... I am very disappointed
