    Hey Phil. I do not know if it is my system or not but I cannot get any pictures on the mares website.

    Anyway, I posted a thread on 4-27 about the mares scissors and got no replies. I just want to know if they are closer to scissors or shears. Sometimes I need to cut through some thick stuff and sea snips just wont do. I was hoping it would be a heavy duty type thing.

    Thanks

    Paul

    Hi Paul,

    I am not sure what product you are asking about. We do not sell this in the US, but if you can describe it to me I can find out for you.

    Our web site is in the process of being updated.

    Regards,

    Phil

    Oh. No wonder I never got any responses. On the website under accessories there is a mares scissors. I can order it but will have to pay for it before I can see it. I use Buffalo shears now and just clean it every week. I need the strength because of some of the things I regularly cut. Anyway the scissors do not look flimsy like EMT shears but look more solid like gardening shears. If anyone can tell me this is so then I will gamble and order them. But if someone says they are like scissors for cutting monoline only then I will pass. Thanks for your time.

    Paul,

    I sent a note our HQ to find out about them. We do not sell them in the US so I have not seen. Will let you know once I hear back.
