The Original Fishing Snip worked so well for me I bought two as gifts. Cutting monofilament and braid is easy and it is handy to hang one from a belt loop. A tool that is always handy and works well is much appreciated. The order process was smooth and shipping quick.
The Super Snip cuts through 80lb braid with ease and without fraying the line. Now if I could only keep the braid from sawing through my fingers...
These tools are very handy to have when fishing and many other task
Got this as a gift. Misplaced my nail clippers on the boat and remembered the gift. Hooked it to my belt loop and began using it. Used it consistently for ten days while fishing in Alaska. Best fishing tool yet. I wouldn't go to sea without it. Saves a lot of time when removing and tying fish line. Hats off to my fishing buddy who looks after me.
I finally wore out the blades on my original snips after two seasons cutting 20 lb braid that I use. Normal braid scissors usually don't last me a season. So, I got a pair of the Super Snips to replace the old snips.
I like these even better. The long blades are really nice for reaching in and cutting the braid on top water poppers that have a deep scoop mouth.
I also like the carabiner attachment. Nice to be able to quickly switch them from my vest to my pack depending on what I'm using that day.
The verdict is still out on the UV Led light. I really liked the light on my old one for tying on lures in low light. We'll see how the UV light works. Doesn't seem as bright as the old one, but may work fine.
I do wish that the new one had screws holding it together like the old one so I could take it apart and touch up the blade a bit like I did with the old one, but that's my only complaint so far.
All and all, a great little tool and being made in the USA is a big plus.
