oh, these are Fabulous! Use these with SoftTouch, PowerPro or any of the strong light lines that are too thick for a regular needle, and not quite strong enough to not need a needle. Slices stringing time into a fraction, especially that tricky going back through the beads to finish off part. I love mine! Pack of 16, size 10 needles. For those of you who have bought these in the past - the packaging has changed, but the item remains the same.
