Good Snips

I really like these cutters. I have 2 of them and have used them often in my kayak this season. They are always near me and I don't have to search for my snips or use my teeth anymore. Mono/Flouro is no problem but I have noticed they don't cut braid as good as they used to. They still cut it but sometimes it takes 2 snips.

Boomerang Snip

The Good

The Snip is made to be a one handed way to cut braid, mono, fluoro and other line types. It absolutely does that. The biggest challenge to cut is braid and it slices through it. I could tie a knot, hold the bait and snip the tag end as closely as I wanted. The blades can also lock in place and with a retractable tag end is available on your belt or PFD.

The price is also great. Available with and without an LED light the Snip ranges in price from $10 to $19. The cutting blades on the snip are very close together which allows for precision cuts with little effort. Additionally, the design is safer to carry on your person than a pair of scissors and will cut better.



Needs Improvement


After lots of testing I finally found the weakness in the Snips. There were no issues with mono and fluoro line but after quite a bit of cutting, the precision on small pound test braid started to lessen. 20 pound braid still cut pretty well but the 10 pound braid took a couple of tries.

Do I still use the Snips? You bet.I don't throw a ton of 10 pound braid so the minor detail isn't a hassle. For the price point, these are worth a look.
