The time tested design of standard line cutters left us unfulfilled, so we ensured the quality of our cutting blades, and dipped them in rubber for better grip and easier identification.
These nippers are great. I can't justify spending $100+ for any right now, but these have done the job for me with no problem. Cut line well and easily. The rubber grip does help when on the water and your hands are wet, and even to identify if you ever drop them (how I lost my last pair). Definitely recommended!
