Would also like to know how good these are.Did a bunch of them google search's and found several reviews and all were positive . Read one that a guy cut mono 50-80lb repeetadly heavy braid and even wire leaders and the blades held there edge .

Just bought some at Sportsman Warehouse. I was skeptical about them cutting very small braid. I use #4 Nan o fil which isn't a braid and the scissors can sometimes be difficult to use because the line is so tiny and I don't see as well as I did 50 years ago. The Boomerang Tool Snip is amazing. With the LED light I can get very close to the knot and it cuts great. Going back and get some more of them for gifts. This is the first cutter that I have ever bought that lives up to it's advertising.

I like the ideal

I have the Fiskars also. Cut great. But sometimes I cut to close with them and nick the line. Broken knot every time. With the LED light I don't have that problem. I'm talking about leader knots where you can't leave much of a tag end.

I have used the tool for a while and no prob with cutting braid or mon. I attached it to my auto pilot remote.

I bought these to specifically cut 10# Powerpro. They did not work worth a hoot. On a Sunday afternoon, I emailed the company about how disappointed I was with the performance. Within 20 min, I got a reply from the president of the company asking me for my mailing address so they could send me replacement set. The following Monday morning I got a reply from the marketing director asking for the same information. 4 days later I had a new pair and they work PERFECTLY. Needless to say I am a customer for life!
