The Hansom Tackle Aluminum fishing pliers are made with new jaws that are replaceable. The backside of each stainless jaw is locked in making these pliers straighter and stronger. The jaw teeth have staggered serrations on them to make them fit closed together every time, allowing for better grip on braided and mono lines.

I really like the holster for these pliers and the pliers themselves also are nice. I also think that they are reasonably priced. I think one pice of equipment anglers neglect is pliers. They're very important, and can save you're trip. This is is a nice middle ground between very cheap pliers and crazy expensive ones. Beware to not hold big fish by the lip with these, as they will bend.
ProsStrong Great holster
ConsCutters aren't great

The reviews everywhere for these pliers were very misleading. Perhaps I simply got a lemon. At the time I ordered them they were back-ordered and I assumed that was a good sign that they were worth the wait.. Tackle direct was actually so good about it that they offered me a higher priced pair of pliers at the same price and I chose to wait. They are great as pliers but the cutters broke off the 3rd time I took them fishing while cutting 40lb spiderwire stealth. I contacted Hansom directly about ordering replacement cutters and they told me to contact a distributor. As far as durability as pliers, they're great. The cutters were definitely an after-thought though.
ProsVery durable pliers.
ConsNot durable cutters.

This is my second pair of these players (they both came free with reel purchase). i have owned the other one for about a year and they are still working great.

I've been using these for about two months now fishing about 4 nights a week. Zero signs of wear. No problems with jaw misalignment. What has got me really impressed is that the cutters cut braid flawlessly still! I've tried the 6" Hansom, and they would have been trashed by now. I returned the 6" and got these.
ProsRock solid pivot bearing. Cutters cut braid on first try after about 100 hours of field time.
ConsThese are just my preferences but I would like to see the line cutter on the outside of the pivot bearing for better visibility. If it compromises the strength or performance of the pliers forget it than. These are great. The handle could be more comfortable but I just took a flat file and rounded the edges over more.

I've used these pliers for years since they hit the market. No complaints. Rinsed with fresh water after every use and spayed with WD-40 twice a season.
