I was wanting the Genesis one for years and could not justify the price and the decided to try the Fiskars Procision rotary bypass trimmer. It has very Similar features to the Genesis. It was about $120. but used a 50% coupon and then had another discount on top of it. I have been EXTREMELY happy with it. It fold in half . I only have to open if I need to cut larger than 5.5 inches. It cuts tiny slivers that curly. I just LOVE it!
