I bought a curling wand, to see if I would like it.
Surprisingly, I do - and have used it a bit more than I thought I would.
However, the one I have is a reverse - & because it's a bit larger, it's limited on the curls it creates.
I like the idea of having several size wands for different types of curls, so I think the sets are worth having.
On another note: I'm constantly considering cutting my hair....
I just can't seem to make a decision.
