Boomerang Snip. I've never used a tool that cuts braid so easily.

Another vote for the boomerang snips! They are small, effecient, and are retractable. What else could you ask for? I keep mine on my belt loop, and it is awesome not havin to dig thought my pockets to find my knife every time I need to re-tie

I'll add another + for the Boomerang - I'e got a dozen sets of 3M scissors on the boat and the Boomerangs have replaced them for everything but wire leaders.

Go with a lighter.  That way if you ever find yourself in a survival situation you can always switch lures.

I use a few sets of titanium scissors sold in the craft isle of most department stores. They cost about $1.00, are plenty sharp enough, and strong enough to last you a few season no problem. Fiskars and Westcott are two good brands to look for.

I have two Boomerang snips, and some kids' Fiskars.

 

Both cut braid well. The Boomerangs are out on the 

water with me. They're not 100% perfect, but darn 

good for the money.

The best thing i've ever used are the Evolution Gorilla Pliers, but they're pricey (mine were free).  Otherwise, the boomerang snips work very well.

I have Lews Pliers that cut great but, I can't get close enough to the knot easily. 

The Boomerang's seem like a good choice. I'm going with them.

Boomerang snips are the best line cutters on the planet and it gets big bonus points since it has the retractable cord and you can attach it to a belt clip/keychain caribiner so it's always handy without having to fish through your gear for a cutting tool.  One thing though is that it will dull over time so you need to use different parts of the snip until it's time to get a new one.  I typically buy a new one at the start of every fishing season, but it's probably my single best investment every year that I have no qualms about.

Forgot my scissors at my house when I went out, just a helpful tip to some of you guys, but the top of a dip can, the bottom edge of it will cut the line for you if you are in a pinch

I use the Rapala braid shears, and never had a problem with them. They cut pretty good.
