The Rapala RCD Retractable Line Scissors come under the beady eye of Angler's Mail tackle editor Richard Howard. He's the No.1 products inspector, checking out loads of quality kit every week.

Description: ‘safe’ scissors for lure anglers.

Specifications: sharp, stainless steel blades; built-in carabiner.

My verdict: a handy accessory for roving lure anglers, these scissors can be attached to a waistcoat, a sling bag or a backpack.

Press the red triggers and the sharp snippers emerge, ready to snip your line, be it fluorocarbon, braid or nylon.

Release the triggers and the blades retract, out of harm’s way when you are on the move. Nice idea!

Price: £8.45.
