I have only got to use them once so far but more than pleased. Quick access with the caribeaner. Sharp scissors and very useful sloped forceps. Also has a eye cleaner which I did use twice. All around great product.
For those of us who like minimal equipment when hiking up a mountain stream in an afternoon with a box of flies for brookies on a 2 -3 wt rod-- this new tool is OK, lots of applications but heavy on a lanyard.
Very sturdy and well made but not light weight. If made with lighter space age alloys would make it a single tool with multi-purpose dream come true. Needs to be put on a diet. Carabiner built in handle is the best idea but build it with the delicacy of a medical instrument.
Finally, a tool that tackles several functions. I don't like carrying a lot of stuff when I fish so this is my solution to simple and versatile. Carabiner for the WIN!
Super versatile and the carabiner handle makes it nice to clip anywhere that is convenient. Works well on and off the water. The clamp is a little sticky and tough to work one handed. May need to just be broken in a little. Overall very happy with these multi tool forceps.
I have been using it during fly tying. It is very useful. Have yet to use it while fishing. Look forward to using it on the water.
