Combining the Rogue Quickdraw Forceps and the Nip n Sip 2.0 was a brilliant idea from Loon Outdoors! The absolute best and most convenient forceps on the market and a sweet set of nippers that hang around your neck, ready for duty and ready to open your beer? Brilliant, indeed! For guys like me who fish both out of a backpack and out of a belt pack system, hooking the forceps anywhere I want and hanging those nippers around my neck gives me great flexibility. I highly recommend the Iconic Kit to every angler who wants the best!
Does everything I want and need while fishing. The lanyard for the nippers has a solid, heavy feel to it. I also really like the caribiner feature on the hemostat... especially when it's summer and I'm wading in shorts and not waders. Easy to just clip on a belt loop. I expect to have many years of happy fishing with these tools.
Purchased this kit as I was in need of a good nipper and just borrowed my spare forceps to another fly fisherman who promptly took it home by accident. He called to send it back, but no worries, I needed a new one anyway and had my eye on this setup. So until my Spare shows up, I am really liking this new Rogue Quick Draw. Easy to use and good for larger hands and thumbs. Both the nipper and Rogue are pretty durable so far and I like how it is out of the way, but right there if needed. Clips well to any D ring on your vest or pack.I highly recommend this set up!
These are the only tools I carry, same high quality as other famous brands which cost much more. These tools do it all - you can make your flies barbless with virtually no effort. So far, they are standing up to everything I've thrown and still look and function like new.
This kit stays on my sling pack. It’s all I carry, for every freshwater fly fishing scenario. Both tools are exceptionally functional, tough, and also somehow minimalist.
