Yes. It's true. Addi Turbo Needle System will be available by mid October. :-)

Here are the specs.

"The addi Click system provides 10 different sizes of addi Turbo™ tips (US 4 – US
15), three different lengths of our new, extremely pliable blue cord (24”, 32” and

the tip, twist and release. The tips will remain secure until you change them."
