ok, honestly i was expecting for this thread to be a shit show, on other forums things get nasty over personal preferences on things like these..
i wet trim. as others have pointed out, your snippers will gum up fast. i used to use vivosun snips while trimming but i was cleaning them every 20 minutes or so..
since then ive moved onto Chikamasa B-500sf Stainless Steel Scissors w/ Fluorine Coating (Resin-resistant).
seriously, if there is a better pair of snippers out there i havent found them.
