I prefer Lineman's pliers or Diagonal pliers for wire cutting because the cutting edge is more of a diagonal and scissors action rather than a square cut. The diagonal and scissors cut seems to have better cutting action at lower force. The diagonal cutting edge was specifically designed for cutting wire (Wikipedia). But, if I forget to bring my Lineman's pliers, I use the fence pliers as my backup - but, it does require more force and the "cut through" snaps more abruptly. Hope this info helps.
