      Hi towpath2,
      I use the wifes eyelash tweezers. With them being a bit more flexible you get a bit more 'feeling' when squeezing if you get my drift!

        i use exactly the same as team rattler, here comes my feminine side, if you go boots you can find tweezers with a wider end to them, making it easier to use

              Try using ZLT shot,deep cut super soft moves on the line without damaging it..It's the best i have ever used bar none.

                    Tweezers and ZLT shot = the perfect combination!

                      Tried shot with style pliers but still found more ended up on the floor so switched to using styles, much easier, better pesentation,easy to move around, don't damage the line and cheap!
                      If you do use shot put a blob of bluetac on the side of your shot container, put the shot onto that so you can easily move the shot around on the blue tac until the cut is uppermost then lay your line over it then use tweezers or style pliers.
