Do most of you bend the bx and use tin snips to cut it or use bx cutter or hacksaw method?

I'll second you (except for larger sizes which need Hacksaw)

I take my Klein diagonals and pinch a rib with the very ends of the cutters. Then you just "unscrew" the aluminum about a 1/4 turn and pull it off. Quick, easy and you don't need to carry around an extra tool.

I had a Roto-Split just sitting in my box for years, until one day my Klein BX cutters broke. After I used the R-S for the rest of the day, I realized how much easier & faster it works for me. Never went back.

I have been using a Roto-Flex for years but I will certainly try this method
