Rapala Precision Line Scissors Review

 With the start of the new fishing season, I'm always cleaning out rusty tools and getting new ones put in my boat and tackle boxes for the upcoming fishing trips. A handy pair of line cutting, skirt cutting and other wise trimming scissors are invaluable to an angler. I recently bought the Rapala Precision Line Scissors and just wanted to share my experience with those.

The Precision Line scissors are compact, tight and extremely sharp cutting scissors with a cam action blades that come in a spring-loaded, single-handed, rubber-grip design. The grips on the scissors help you force a lot of pressure into the cutting joint of the scissor blades so you can cut one handed and make precise sharp cuts on loose braids, monofilaments, tag ends, and more.

The scissors have a lock so you can safely throw them in a tackle bag or dark compartment without worry of getting one of the edges of the blades. They are easily adjustable with a single nut and come with a lanyard attachment if you desire.

The Rapala Precision Line Scissors retail for $15. You can find them at TackleWarehouse.com or on Rapala.com
