Decided it was time to change the needle in my sewing machine today. Switched from a 135x16 D/TRI needle (on the left) to a 135x16 LR/RTW (on the right). Both needles are size 110/18 using TEX70 bonded nylon thread. The D/TRI needle makes a diamond or triangular shaped hole, where the LR/RTW makes a left-right slanted hole (RTW stands for reverse twist). Biggest consideration on changing the needles is adjusting the tension. Both the top and bottom tensions needed to be tweaked significantly when I made the change, because the tension on the thread going through the slanted hole is that much different than the diamond-shaped hole. Anyway, I think both needle styles create a great looking stitch!
