Bass Pro Shops XPS Line Clippers
no problems here
I read the reviews and for $3-$4 I was willing to take a chance. The tool hasn't fallen apart on my and I do find it useful. However I do use a lot of braided line and you have to take a little more time to cut that type of line. It's not always perfect but it cuts better than I can cut it with a knife or my teeth.

XPS Line Clippers
I recently purchased two XPS Line Clippers. One for me and one for my 6 yr old son. He broke it within minutes. I think the design needs a little improving. The main pin that holds it together is pretty cheap and does not extend enough compared to other similar products I have used. In addtion, the line detangler seems to poke your hands every time you open and close the clippers. I will stay clear of wasting my money on this product in the future.

Don't Go Fishing Without It
This is one of those gadgets that, like polarized glasses, will become a standard in your fishing arsenal. Whether clipping mono or braided line, sharpening a hook or picking out a nasty backlash, this baby is worth it's weight in gold. Don't tell Bass Pro Shops, but I'd pay 3 times the retail price if I had to replace it.

Piece of Junk
This little tool is worthless. Every time I try to use it the handle pops off. I put it back together several times. I still have my receipt and I'm taking it back.
