Rated 5 out of 5 by bsmoke from Great dual-purpose tool. This tool was designed as a line-cutter for braided line, which it does perfectly. However, I primarily use it to mend plastic baits that normally get thrown away after they are torn from a couple of fish. If you dry the water from your plastic baits, you can mend them in 2-3 seconds and use the again. Just insert the hot tip into the torn spot and run it back and forth a couple times until you see the plastic start to melt, remove the tool and quickly pinch the plastic together for a second or two and you are back in business. I carry spare batteries in my tackle box so that I never run out of power or never run out of a "hot bait" while on the water.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Lonely fisherman from Small one, garbage. Large one, excellent. I use them for 6,7 years. The small one, with AAA bateries, did stop getting hot after one month. Had 3 of them, all the same story. Large one, 2AA batteries excellent, still in use today. Incredibly, Berkley did discontinue the small one, I m trying to find a second one, large size, somewhere, John, Canada.

Rated 1 out of 5 by wormwiggler from Terrible I bought this about two months ago from BassPro. Got it to cut braid. It worked great at first. Cut quick and clean. Within about 30 uses it wasn't cutting nearly as quick. I had to hold the tip on the line for more than a few seconds for it to cut through. If the line was wet (obviously I was fishing so the line does get wet) forget it, there is no way it would cut it. I decided that maybe the batteries were just weak. I changed out the batteries and then it didn't even cut at all. Even on dry line. I thought I might have had the batteries in wrong so I triple checked and sure enough they were in right every time. I decided to swap the tip out. Still nothing. Plus the new tip just falls right out every time I go to retract the tip. This thing is a piece of junk. Save your money and but a pair of braid scissors

Rated 2 out of 5 by ncbf1 from Works great Great on dry line, but will not cut braid that's wet. Wet line causes you to use more pressure thus bending and breaking the hot tip. Both purchases, home and boat failed.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ppcer from Doesn't last I've had two now. Both worked well for several times. Put it away with the batteries in and they will be dead for your next outing. Use it for the season and i guarantee it wont finish the season with you. I took both apart and attribute the problem to the wiring being hard and brittle and then breaking from the wires moving with the sliding switch. Works well on all line but don't depend on it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by KWP214 from One shot wonder It works once and is garbage after that. I have bought two and both died after the first use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CTBeader from Love it Bought this to use with Fireline while beading. Works great! Got hot faster than some more expensive hot cutters I've purchased. Also easier to turn on and feels more secure in hand. Would like to be able to purchase replacement tips.
