In the past I have used the Berkley braid scissors which were the best scissors I had used until my son lost them. I then purchased a number of different brands of scissors only to find that they don't work after a while or even not at all without fraying of the line. I then bought 2 of these from the US as I couldn't buy them in Australia. It is a pleasure to find something that actually works great for cutting through braid and monofilament lines. I have yet to test how long the batteries last but in using rechargeable batteries it is easy enough to carry another pair with you. In the meantime, whilst waiting for my delivery, I have managed to buy another pair of Berkley scissors. Thank you Berkley for 2 great products
I have both Boomerang Fishing Line Cutter and Berkley Hot Line Cutter. both are excellent product but Berkley Hot Line Cutter is very convenient the only issue is it battery life is tooooo short. It cuts and seal the braid line. I have used it on up to 60lb J-Braid line and up Berkley 80lb mono leader lines no issue in slicing.
This had to shipped from the USA site as could not find a UK supplier. For the price it does the job of cutting & sealing the end of fishing lines, especially braid, very neat & tidy. It comes with a spare cutting wire so hopefully it will last a while. Well pleased with purchase
This worked great the first couple of times I used it. At about the 5 th time it no longer burns the thread back. I've gone back to using a lighter. I used it to burn back polyester thread. Could be to much for this and would be fine with fishing line that doesn't need as much heat. For my use I would need to buy new burning ends more often.
Not disipointed as it works well to cut fishing line and I also use it for waxed poliester thread when sewing. It came with batteries wichis always a plus and I like how the hot cutting/melting end is protected once used.
