What's everyone's preference to trim braid. Mine always leave a frayed end even if I'm careful

I buy a new pair every now and then when they stop cutting properly.

Latest pair are the edge ones from Burnsco.

Important thing is to use them only on braid

To 're sharpen ' braid scissors.
Cut a bit of 800 or 1200 sand paper.
Had the same 2 pairs scissors for over 10yrs now.
 I just cut back near flush, then rub what s left of the tag so its soft and bit frayed.

I just use the Shimano 4” braid scissors. I watch for when their on sale and buy a couple of pairs (usually about $7 each).

I’m not very disciplined with “only cutting braid” with them so they last a few months.

I do find that the right amount of tension on the line helps with a clean cut. (Trial and error)

When rigging at home my FG and PR knots I will touch the tag end with a lighter pinching the wet knot between my fingernails to protect it from the heat.

I also use a thin layer of UV knot sense on the knots as it gives an extra layer of protection. (Probably overkill)

That being said I still sometimes have my Rizzuto knot occasionally unravel on my softbait set up. My leader is usually 2 to 3 m long so it goes through the guides every cast. The 3 or 4 overhead knots have never completely unraveled though.
