Everything you would want in a forceps. It is shape enough to cut braid, that says a lot right there.
Big improvement over other forceps. Better than my Abel’s. Easy to open and lock. A real winner.
Big and Burly I really like them in my drift boat while guiding.
I've owned a number of foreceps/pliers over the years and these are by far my favourite. Not only are they comfortable, sturdy and easy to use, but the carabiner makes sure they are always where I need them. The convenience of having them clip onto my wader belt, pack loop or belt loop ensures that they are more likely to go back to where they belong, meaning less lost foreceps.
These forceps are handy and eliminate several tools I was using before. As a small woman who fishes, I was pretty surprised at how large they are. Much larger than I need, but the clip is awesome.
