Get what you pay for I guess...

I was in one of the big chain sporting good stores a week ago and was just browsing through the fishing section when I spotted this little item. Having wrestled with braided line using a pair of old fingernail clippers the past year or so, I figured I needed to pick up something that will cut braid better. This seemed to be priced right and the retractable design seemed pretty handy. I figured it would stow in my PFD pocket nicely and I just happened to have a few spools that I needed to put some line on at home.

After using it a few times, I have to suggest you don't buy it. The design is great, the lanyard is going to be handy on something else I'm sure, but the EZ Stow doesn't cut braid any better than my old pair of fingernail clippers. I usually know better and have always been a believer (for the most part) that you get what you pay for. I should have known. Do yourself a favor and stay away from these if you're looking for some braid scissors.
