The raptor shears definitely needed this refresh, this new model is more ergonomic and had a more sturdy feeling . They are dimensionally thicker and shorter they dont have a sheath but come with a longer pocket clip they definitely have a bigger print when carrying but they dont have that forsaken glass breaker that would start and iv on my arm ever time I hit it when I had the original raptors sheathed they Also got rid of the “gut hook” strap cutter I have personally never used the hook in the field as I would use my knife. the reposition the o2 reach to a more accessible area of the tool is great. the handles are thicker and a lot more ergonomic that the previous, these handles feel like they double the cutting power as you can apply more force without the handles digging into your hands over all a very nice revamp of a old trusty tool , the one issue is that they look like kid scissors :/
