Have not had a chance to put to a good test. Cut some braid and it works fine. Batteries were DOA so I'm not sure about light.
since I ha e not receivedmy order yet I have no comment.
Now a late Christmas gift
It really works. I've tried a number of other scissors, but nothing cuts braid like the Boomerang. It cuts through the braid easily while it's taut or loose. Like the retractable cord for easy access. A great buy!
