Why kind of needles do you prefer - plastic, aluminum, wood, glass? Something other material I haven't heard of before?
I have aluminum needles right now and they are feeling so slippery. I keep sliding things right off the needle while I'm knitting. I'm so tempted to move to wood. I have one tiny pair of circular wood needles that I was using for practice (so far - no tubular projects in my mind yet). And I really like how they feel - less slippery, more grippy.
