Twist Shortie tips are made of surgical-grade, stainless steel which means there is little to no chance of allergic reaction, no corrosion, no discolouring and NO smell. The size is laser imprinted on each tip. Twist tips can be used with Spin nylon and Red cables.
These special 3" Shortie tips are now available individually, and can be combined with Shortie Cables to create small circumference circualr needles 11-14" in length.
Sizes US 0 (2.0mm) through US 3 (3.25mm) can be used with the Red Shortie Cables (7105-M and 7106-M), and are made of solid steel. These tips have an added tightening hole in the tip to assist in joining them to a cable.
Sizes US 4 (3.5mm) through US 8 (5.0mm) can be used with the Blue Shortie X-Flex Cables (7605-S, 7606-S, 7608-S), and are hollow steel, making them lighter and easier to use. These tips do not have an added tightening hole in the tip, so the tightening key must be used in the cable.
