Shears are light but feel a little front-heavy. The oval grips are soft and comfy – chunky enough to fill small hands. Long handles give good reach and great control, holding a good line on hedges. The slim, slightly shorter blades cut easily through heavy stems such as holly, while the shears are manoeuvrable enough to tackle detail topiary work. The bump-stop is soft and absorbs shocks well.
The best all-rounder giving confidence, cutting well and being very manoeuvrable. Worth the higher price.
