Default What's a good tool for cutting PowerPro?

What do you guys use to cut your PowerPro? I have a Leatherman scissors, and they only work even decent when the line is super-taut.

Is there anything out there that can cut it when it's moderately slack?

Thanks in advance.

Fiskers. The kind the kids use to cut construction paper.

You can also recycle your dental floss for use as a cutter.

I am too lazy to sharpen my filet knife once it requires more than 30-60 sec a side to sharpen, so I have plenty of old knives laying around, I keep a smaller on on the boat for cutting line. Even dull the razor edge of a filet knife seems to cut right through power pro

You have a fingernail clipper that cuts braid?? Where'd you find that - I want one. I must have 20 of the things and not one of em will cut braid cleanly.

Best thing I've found so far are the Fiskar Kids Scissors, Blunt-Tip, 5" Full Length, Rust Resistant Steel. They go for around $3.00 a pair and I usually get a few seasons out of them. Got one in my vest, one in my water pouch and one in each surf bag.

Ahh, Powerless Pro, that would be the reason.
Try it with Fireline, Superbraid or Stealth, not so good on them.
