    Battery is great in my opinion. Comes with two so you can have both charged.

    Is this the same reason you like the Twister blades?
    The Bubba Blades are too agressive and rag up the filet. The salt water are too big for crappie.

    I don't really know. Two limits (30) is all I have cleaned at one time. I have never had to go to the second battery. When I am done cleaning I put the battery back on
    the charger and bring it back to full charge.
    Tell'em I'll be there.

    Anyone ever tried the Filletzall?

    I've got a Milwaukee Hackzall that might make a nice fillet knife. Used to use the black and decker until the knives dulled, haven't replaced it yet.

    I agree with all the comments about Bubba's blades with the cordless. I have a cordless Bubba knife (gift) and I wanted to throw it in the lake the first time I used it. I think I sliced about 10 crappie in half with every blade it came with before I went right back to my $20 Mister Twister knife. If you are looking for an inexpensive knife, Mister Twister is the way to go. I like it better than any other electric knife I have used. Cheapest I have found is at Academy for around $20. It's a steal for what it is.... Now, I will admit, the cordless feature of the Bubba is pretty nice. I have since learned to put the Mister Twister blades in the Bubba handle. It works well. Worth the money? Not in my opinion, but it is easy to clean fish off the back of a truck without a needed power outlet. In my experience, I get about 45-50 crappie cleaned with one charge of one battery. That is with time in between each 15 fish outing, so the battery sits in the cold or heat of my boat until the next trip. When one battery dies, I plug it in along with the boat batteries once I get home.
