Try these shears to cut fishing lines

   If you've done any amount of fishing you know how much of a challenge it can be to cut through some of the newer lines in use today.
   For a long time I still used the clippers that I cut nylon leaders for walleye harnesses and tippet on a fly line. Clippers hardly cut braid.
   Often I would up closing the jaws of the nippers while trying to pull the braid apart. If it did give, it tore in a manner that left shreds of line dangling.
   Now comes Berkley, the folks that have given us baits, rods, and many of those new lines that are seemingly impossible to cut, with  new tool for that purpose.
   The Berkley Superline Shears is one such tool. They'll cut through braid, mono and other lines that make traditional cutting tools obsolete. Made of stainless steel, they're corrosion resistant.
   These shears should be the only cutting tool you'll need to cut through any line. Clip a pair to a zinger so they are handy and you're good to go, especially when a bait change is needed.
   I used mine several times on a recent kayak fishing trip with absolutely no problems cutting braid whenever I needed to.
  Pick a pair up and give them a try. They will be the only line cutting tool you'll need.
