Who has the best prices on Felco pruners?  My bi-lateral carpal tunnel
syndrome is killing me tonight.  Just spent 2 days at pruning demos in
San Diego's Balboa Park with SDRS, not to mention my meager collection
of 100 at home, only about half finished.  I'm looking for the Felco #7
with the handle that rotates.  I've tried ratchet pruners, worst piece
of junk I ever bought!  Thanks.

Can't help with the cheapest price since Home Depot stopped carrying Felcos
(too many shoplifted), but if you aren't already doing it, frequent sharpening
of your shears can make the job much easier.

"Who has the best prices on Felco pruners?"

My research on the subject undertaken in connection with the writing of an
article on Felcos in the last issue of the Rose Parade, the newsletter of the
Los Angeles Rose Society, revealed that the lowest prices I could find were
quoted by the mail order source A.M. Leonard 800-543-8955. They list the Felco
#2 in their last catalogue at $30.45. My favorite, the #8 is listed at $34.89.
Shipping costs will add $7.50 to the order.
