Is anyone using something like this to cut braid? I like the idea of SS for not rusting. If not what are you using?

I use a pair of sharp clippers. I realize braid can be tough to cut, but it's something I don't lose any sleep over.

Buck Splizzors. Good, heavy pliers/scissors that stay on the deck of the boat.

I use the Boomerang snips, small, sharp and keep an edge.

Any of these inexpensive "grade school looking" little scissors for 5-10 bucks work great. http://www.basspro.com/shop/en/rapala-super-line-scissors?hvarAID=shopping_googleproductextensions

I was a huge fan of the Boomerang Snips, until I tried the Pitbull Tackle Cutters. Bar none they are the best cutters out there.

These work fine and not much lost of you drop them overboard.
School supplies at Walmart, etc.

I agree with this. Rapala or berkley braid scissors work amazingly well and last a decent time given their price. Ffo-tackle occasionally has them on sale. You can buy several pair and stash them.

Braid scissors are like $2-$3 at academy or Walmart. Boomerang snip is great though
