The Rogue Quickdraw Forceps and the Nip n Sip 2.0 were designed for the angler who demands a lot from tools, but who wants to carry very little. Both products are packed with features that make them as versatile and as useful as any tool out there.
Freshwater or saltwater for sure
With my quickdraw forceps I’ve taken a hook off of a small 8 inch rainbow and a 23 inch fluke.. these are durable, yet slim, low profile, easy to clip on to your clothing or tackle pack.
These nip and snips are butter! They’ve snipped up to 20 lb leader easily. They feel durable.. little heavier than the nippers I’ve had and I like that weight cause I know it’s there.. not to mention they’ve been used to open up some brews.
I was weary to buy this cause I didn’t think I’d like the style of the forceps. I took a chance and I’m glad I did.. All I recommend is putting some grease on the forceps.
Best forceps I have. Love the quick release instead of clicking the forceps teeth on my shirt.
Thought the nippers were missing the hook eye needle until I looked on the inside -- this is better and kept me from sticking my finger like on another company's nippers.
The clamps are great. Powerful jaws on the clamp. with gloves, easy to hook on to the vest. Nippers stay sharp and the bottle opener is great for opening cold ones that you stashed in the stream
These are probably two of the most popular tools any angler reaches for out on the water. Loon takes the sting off of the pricey super premium snippers. The forceps sit well in the hand and pluck pesky hooks out with ease. The cutting edges are both sharp and save you the precious seconds you sometimes need while targeting fish.
I'm used to the old cheap silver forceps and $1 snippers that I've had forever. These are worth the price when they were on sale for half off. Great grip and feel. Carabiner grip is very convenient. Easy to use with any gear set up. I like the zingerless design as well, makes for easier use and simpler transfer to other gear setups.
