“Our editors were duly impressed with the design and functionality of Boomerang’s ‘The Snip,’ so we decided to include it among the short list of ‘must have’ fishing accessories covered in our Guide,” said Moore. “While there were a lot of great new products at ICAST, we couldn’t feature them all. Only a handful of accessories were selected by our editorial staff for review, and The Snip led off the lineup.”
About the size of a person’s thumb and weighing in at a mere 1.25 ounces, the Snip is small and light, yet extremely durable and corrosion resistant. Its “Grade 420” stainless steel scissor blades cut cleanly through through monofilament, fluorocarbon, and even braid. And, because The Snip’s 30-inch retractable “leash” can be attached anywhere on a boat, or to your belt loop, fishing vest or tackle box, it’s always secure and handy. The Snip is also extremely affordable. With an MSRP of just $11.95 ($14.95 MSRP for the version with a built in LED light), it’s priced to fit any angler’s budget.
