Other than using a knife, what kind of cutters / scissors are pretty decent for cutting 50 - 130# braid? I use both solid and hollow core. Thank ya.

Boomerang tool. I prefer the short snippers to the scissors.

Check out the Jerry Brown spectra scissors. They are about $20. They have tiny serrations on the blade which grab the spectra and you can get a nice clean cut even if the spectra is hanging loose.

I gotta agree with Carl, the Boomerangs are my go to choice for cutting braid. I too like the short snips but the longer ones are good too.

A cheap yet effective set of cutters with red handles are at harbor freight for about $7.

I use a cheap (~$5 I think) pair of ceramic blade scissors from Amazon. Never rusts and stays sharp.

Myself, and others on the fishing boat who borrowed my Boomerang, we all like the tool quite a bit! :)

99 cent Fiskers at school supply counters. I take a handful with me on trips and just leave them with crews. They work well and if you lose one who cares?
