I was on the search for a better way to cut braided line, read some threads in a search and some guys were posting about Fiskar scissors in the kid section at Walmart. Today I was there and searched for them, I found them in the back to school section with about 20 mom's and 30 kids. Got my hands on a pair and they work great, not sure how long they will last but they cut braided line like butter with no fraying.

Though I would share my find

Been recommending them for several years. I like the Child Size, because they fit easily into a plastic tray/tackle box. They should last for many years, and even if they don't last for more than a few years ... at their price (~ $2 ) they're easily replaceable with little crying from your wallet.

I also recommend a 6" piece of wooden dowel rod ... to use to wrap your braid around to pull a snagged bait loose. Braid can cut your hand/fingers, and even foam or cork rod handles, if you use them. I've already experienced that mistake (using 10/2 PowerPro) !!

X2 - Another vote for the Boomerang Tool. Small, compact and stores easily.

Here's the link on Amazon:

I cannot use the "kiddie" scissors, as the finger holes are too small. I have a couple pairs of the Repala scissors made specifically for braid. I have them tethered to a short piece of broomstick with para-cord to pull snags.

Fiskars craft scissors are actually of better quality, still the same small form factor and are crazy sharp. I've had the same two pairs for 3-4 years and they still haven't needed sharpening. Look for them in the craft section of your local big box or a hobby lobby type store.

I also vote for the Boomerang Tool. Once you try it you will wonder why you didn't sooner. Little more expensive ($12) but very easy to use and cut any line right at the hook eye easily. I hook them on my belt loop for always having them close by and easy to get to. Works good for me.

I use Fiskers. Got several CYA pairs Been using them since CP made mention years back. Cat's meow they be. Dowel rod is a top notch tool also. I graduated from a dowel to a soft grip #2 phillips. Call it a multipurpose tool if you wish.

It took me a while to find this - it is the thread I posted some time ago about scissors.

Thanks for the post on Fiskers. I used to post a reminder about Fiskers & Back to school but old age has really caught up with me. I always bought Fiskers and at $2.00 a pair I would replace them every 2 years always worked fine for me.:HandsClapping

I bought the pointed version, I think they have bigger finger holes than the blunted ones. I used them last night cutting 60 lb braided line catfishing.

I do need to find a better way to store tools to fid them.

Just got the wife to buy me 2 new pair yesterday. One pink and one red. The pink are staying in the shop. 1.25 ea at the Mart. Cut better than my high dollar rapala.
