I recently used a shear with Texas cattle comb 1554-29 to slick some steers. I was super impressed with results. Fast, no lines and very uniform.

I see many people using a combo of T84’s and 84AU

I’m considering buying a set of New fusion shears.

What are the advantages or disadvantages of using a sheer versus a clipper to slick cattle for show? I realize the shear will not work for the Tight small areas and would have to use t84’s anyway in those spots.
