ChiaoGoo Needle Tips
When it comes to slick surface and sharp tips, ChiaoGoo are among the best and are my favourite metal needles to work with.
Very sharp tips
15 mm taper from full circumference to tip
Nice weight in the hand
Size laser printed in grey on needle
The screw join on ChiaoGoo tips comes in 3 sizes, Mini, Small and Large. Tip sizes US 000 (1.5mm) through US 1.5 (2.5mm) are Mini, sizes US 2 (2.75 mm) through US 8 (5 mm) are Small and sizes US 9 (5.5 mm) through US 15 (10 mm) are large. Adaptors can allow Small tips to be used with Mini Cables, and Large Tip with Small Cables. In other words, you can go down a size in cable, but not up.
