Depends on yarn if its slippy then i want my bamboo if not then small ordinary pony straight if not pony circular hate interchangeables they all unscrew for me and  i'm not a snob in needles or yarn like the LYS owner who won't stock anything unless expensive how ever good it is she has lasted 2 years spent all her retirement funds and now closing. If it does the job then that what i need

I have all kinds but I am finding that I really like using the addi turbos (metal) the yarn just glides over them. I have bamboo in every size possible and am slowy adding stock of the Addi turbos. If at all possible I work on circular needles instead of 4 needles. It just seems to prevent any lag where needles change and if you are worried about tension work inside out.

Wooden. Circular. Inerchangable needles are the best!

I love my Knitter's Pride Platina CUBICS Special interchangeable tips.  The specials are 3.5" long and can be used to make a 16" circ and my gauge is much more even using the cube (square) shape.  I dislike wooden needles and much prefer a really pointy metal tip.

Yo utilizo agujas circulares de plástico y de bambú.. Desde que las probé no utilizo otras, antes utilizaba las rectas pero si estaba mucho tiempo tejiendo me dolían las manos y muñecas muchísimo, con estas ni me entero..

I prefer interchangeable needles and the material of the needle tips that I choose depends on the fiber content of the yarn.  Smoother needles (like metal) for non-slick yarns, and bamboo or wood for slicker yarns. I almost never use straight needles for anything but I do use dpns for things like the crowns of hats.  Generally, my favorites are Karbonz,or other carbon fiber needles, but again, it depends on the fiber content of the yarn.

Circular. Much easier than straights!

My favourite are Knit pro symfonie circulars. they grip the wool well and are easy to use and the joins are very smooth.
