Clipper Suggestions for whiskers/ears/fetlocks

I've been saving up for a nice pair of clippers that I can use for bridle path, fetlock, whisker, and ear clipping instead of my little disposable razors and scissors. I don't need anything with body clipping capabilities, just something for the small stuff. Any recommendations?

Ditto, just make sure the mane and fetlocks are real clean or they'll bog down. I also use a cordless small Wahl Clipper (not quite full sized but not a procke pro and it's quieter) for all that too.

I got a little bullet clipper for ears a few years ago from my aunt. She has a hair salon and ordered them. At that time I had one who was super sensitive to the noise and these are quieter than any clippers I'd found marketed for horses. I will check out the brand tomorrow. They were pretty cheap and do a great job.

Wahl Touch Up Trimmer in Clippers at Schneider Saddlery

I use these^.

They fit nicely into the ear, and really do a nice clip job, especially with the end attachments provided. They've carried me through monthly shows, thrown around, and dropped, and they're still running strong. It's suprised me for the price, but they are actually pretty durable.

Thanks for the suggestion. Are they appropiate for bridle path and fetlock trimming as well?
