I just got pricing on the Pro Line tools and will hopefully be able to order them in the next week or two. Oh, and there's introductory pricing. I'm not sure how long the introduction sale will last, as these prices and this sale are dictated by the manufacturer.

Final pricing up on website!

I'm told that each tool is going to come with it's own zippered case, but I think that's still up in the air a little bit.

Yeah I'll probably go with the same ones but still trying to decide on the straight tip or curved. What are the benefits of each?

I always prefer curved since you can use it either way.
Now if you get straight and you need it curved to get into a certain angle then your done. At least with curved you can use it both way.
If that make sense lol!

I agree with Han on the curved or straight bit. At least I think I do. Spell check is your friend, Han :p

Will do, sir.

The best pinsettes I've got are the current 12" EbiKen.

Is this the same Ebi-ken that is based out of Vancouver, BC? If so, I can vouch for the quality if these items, very very nice stuff for the price.

Oh, so when you hold down, it springs back up, like an auto trim?

Exactly. The scissors "spring" back open after you stop applying pressure to them. It really makes big pruning jobs a lot easier. Helps when trimming at odd angles too. You don't have to manually reopen the scissor blades after a cut.

That spring mechanism is a life saver, especially in a small tank. Cut my DHG trimming time by 75%. Highly recommended.
