I've heard really good reviews on these pliers from Hansom Not a bad price either, compared to VS or Accurate.

I always carry Manley pliers. One in my bag and one in my chest/jacket pocket. I had one occassion when I was caught without pliers and a nice treble hook in my finger- never again. I have sargent pliers as well. Never had any problems with them.

Abel #4's. Never leave home without them. This pair has been with me for the better part of 10 years. They still slice through braid like a warm knife through butter.

Are you fishing from a Boat? If so I use the $10 ones from the tackle store they might be slightly more but I've had the same ones since 2007 and if it accidently gets lost I won't cry over $10-20 BUCK pliers.
If your using them in the surf and going to get them wet you may consider a better quality ones

I have a 40 year old pair of Sargeants that were probably the finest fishing plier ever built... The Calcuttas are a cheap( not inexpensive) knock off of that durable plier... a good pair of lines mens pliers work well as a utility plier.. you just have to keep them oiled.. but they will cut a 5/0 hook as easily as a fillet knife cuts a ham sandwich... something to consider if a thrashing bluefish or bass sinks a 4/0 treble into your carcass...

I've been using the Ross pliers that are really light. Good pliers overall that still cuts braid well.

I find the needle nose I bought for a buck work just as well as anything else.

I have the orvis piers ( if for any reason they crap out i will definately get fixed or new ones). These are by my side and MY 40 year old sargeants are with me always as well. This should be a sticky with other safety threads.

Hi all

I have a pr of titatuim pliers they are alright,
I still use stainless steel nail clippers for most of
my line clipping.
But for cutting large hooks(out of you) or off your plugs
get a small pair of wire cutters like the ones the cut locks off of,
but smaller. Keep them in your car.
If you go to the hospital, this happened to me yrs back.
I had an 7/0 treble in me and the hospital had nothing to pull the hook through and nothing to cut the barb off.
Had to go to my car and get the sargents and wire cutters.
To save all of this from happening crush your barbs on the trebles
unless your in a tournament.

good luck
Mike P

I would suggest something inexpensive, and don't use a friends expensive pair. Because honestly once you use an expensive pair its tough to go back. What you don't know you will never miss.

I hope they threw your bill away since you had to supply the tools necessary to perform the procedure. That is a bit odd, no? You'd think they'd have SOMETHING around that could be used. Guess doctors and nurses aren't as crafty as some of us fisherman, LOL!!!!
