    Nice nippers Nice Nippers

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I like these because they are longer than most nippers and fit better in my large hands. They cut tippet and leader easily and it's not hard to snip extremely close to your knots. It's hard to beat replaceable blades and a lifetime warranty.

    Could be better

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Seems like it's tough to find the perfect nippers out there. Getting good cutting performance for a reasonable price can be hard to come by. The price point on the Barracudas is a little higher than I usually spend on nippers, but I went for it thinking that maybe the performance would reflect it.
    Overall, I would give these a B on cutting performance. It's decent, but still can be finicky depending on where on the cutting surface you place the tippet. On my pair, it seems like the corners cut better than the center of the blade.
    My other gripe is that they are not super easy to close. It kind of takes a lot of pressure. It's not like you have to strain to use them or anything, but it would be nice if they were a bit smoother.
    In short, they're decent nippers but not anything to write home about. They'll definitely get the job done, it's just a question of whether the $30 is worth it to you.

    Love the nipps

      I've tried several brands of nippers and I have my gripes about them all. I love the look and feel of these and they do the job better than most. It's hard to beat a cheap pair of Rising Nippas but if you like something a little cooler looking with better precision I would definitely go with these.
