Default cutting braid

UGGH... does any one have any suggestions on how to cut briad like power pro or fire line. It gets so annoying to me, because everytime i cut it i have to like hack at it then the end of the line gets all frayed.

If anyone has any suggestions i would really appreciate it.

Thanks

I'm real happy with these for cutting braid. Just don't go cutting wire with them then try to cut your braid afterwards. They float too! Excellent products.

I just put 80lb PP on my cod rod...
I also found it hard to cut and tie...

I tried the Albright a couple of times, finally I got a solid knot...
...I found that you can't pull the knot tight with pliers, because it slides the outer braid up the line, and it F's it up...Gloves, spit and elbow grease do a much better job... :D

...but I'm coming to love it... :D

I have a Gerber multi-tool that works wundiz. A Gerber blade, serated or not, will cut anything :)

I use a set of Fiskars kids scissors to cut Power Pro and other braids. I get the ones with the rounded points, which makes them easy to store. I have mine attached to my salt water bag with a retractor so they are easy to get to. I keep another pair hanging off my trout vest. Plus, I think that I got my last pair for something like $1.90.

I just use an old set of nail clippers, if I want something a little quicker and cleaner I'll pull the knife out of my pocket or from my tacklebox (where ever it is at the time)
