I am continuously frustrated with my nippers having a hard time cutting my braided line or not opening far enough to cut mono/floro knots.
Seen a lot about high end nippers but just could not see forking that kind of money out for them and being afraid I might loose them.
I recently found the boomerang snip fishing line cutters. Actually a small pair of serated scissors you squeeze instead of put your fingers into which have a retractable tether.
I tried them on 20#braid, 60#braid, 6x fly line, 30#mono, 20#floro, 6#mono all cut effortlessly and easily.
Braid cut very cleanly with no fraying.
A little bigger than normal clippers and retractor but works easily and actually cuts what you want.
Great price at under $15.
Time will tell how they hold up in fresh water being wet from frequent kayak fishing.
Also have some made for saltwater under $25.
