Default Hiroshima needles

I am looking to try the Hiroshima quilting between and I canít seem to find the size I use. Iíve always used John James 11 between. Are the Hiroshima needles sized differently? Iíve seen 10,12 then they go to a 13. Also where would the best place to purchase them be? Thanks for advice?

size 11 do seem to be missing from the line looking at Hancock's of Paduacah.
I bought a box of mixed sizes a few years ago, sucked in by the nice packaging Couldn't tell any difference.

The company started making needles 300+ years ago as a place for lower ranked samurai to earn an income.

If you can’t find them at your local quilt shop, they are available on Amazon. I purchased size 10 and size 12. Though I can use both, I prefer size 12.

I looked at the Hiroshima catalog online and their betweens do not have a size 11. Their betweens come in sizes 8, 9, 10, 12, and 13.
