PENN Tools

by Chris Grech

PENN now offers a variety of spring loaded pliers designed for a wide range of applications. 304 and 420 stainless steel wrapped in a titanium black nickel coating gives these tools the maximum level of hardness, durability and corrosive resistance. Each tool passed PENN's extreme 168-hour saltwater and acid tests while the handles are non-slip and ergonomically shaped for comfort.

The 7-inch wire cutters have sturdy, sharp jaws to cut through stainless steel single-strand wire cable up to 0.84 inches thick. This is a great companion to the 10-inch leader crimpers that can handle sleeves up to 0.08 inches in diameter.

The all-around use Bull-Nose pliers from PENN come in two sizes: 6.5- and 8-inch overall lengths with plenty of torque strength. Each is equipped with side-mounted cutting jaws that feature replaceable blades.

The 6.5-inch Parallel Plier is the ideal offshore plier for cutting wire, monofilament and hooks. The design produces extreme pressure on the jaws for heavy work, while the bypass cutters actually cut instead of pinch.

Never let a hook lodged deep in the fish's mouth be a problem. Save the hook and the fish with PENN's 13-inch Hook Extractor designed for inshore use. This elongated tool allows anglers to delve deep into the mouths of small as well as large fish to retrieve hooks or lures. Squeeze the pistol-grip handle and the tip clamps down for a secure hold.

A durable holster accompanies each of these tools.
