We cringe to remember the times when we, young and naive, overzealously hacked away at cable housing only to realize we'd measured incorrectly. Heads hanging and eyes downcast, we'd abandon our evening ride plans and instead head back to our LBS, buy another package of housing, and start all over again. Though the Feedback Sports Cable Cutter won't tell you if you're about to cut too much, it will provide you with clean, precise cuts every time you need them. Not struggling to slice a clean break in your shifter or brake housing goes a long way towards your overall precision, though we must emphasize (from personal experience) that double, triple, and even quadruple checking your measurements never hurts. Once you're sure you've done everything right, crimp the end cap with the Cable Cutter as well. Rather than making you switch tools just before you're done, Feedback Sports made sure the Cable Cutter could help you finish off the job in just a few smooth steps.
