Per­for­mance

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.

Value

The best all-rounder giv­ing con­fi­dence, cut­ting well and be­ing very ma­noeu­vrable. Worth the higher price.
