BUY THESE PLIERS!!!!
there is no reason to spend a zillion dollars on pliers. I love the line cutters on here- cuts through braid like butter. Holds up well and does the job.

Great Tool, Fraction Of Cost
I have two pairs of this tool and they work great. Just Rinse thoroughly with fresh water and they'll last a long time. Several of my fishing friends have also purchased these same pliers based on my comments and use.
ProsLight weight, rust free and you can purchase replace cutting accessoies.

Really liking these pliers..Doing good job so far removing hooks & cutting both Braid & Mono. Light, smooth, and seem to be a good value for under $30 bucks!
September 7, 2017
Good Pliers for the price, you simply cannot beat them for $30. The handle and weight are very nice for the price. The pliers cut line very easily including braid. The belt loot however is not great quality and broke after 2 days. The plastic ring also is cheaply made. However due to the cheap below $30 price this is acceptable.

Nice pliers. Light but plenty strong. Don't rust. Line cutters were great until the cutting heads both fell out. Guess the little screw which holds them attached to the pliers gets loose over time. May be worth checking occasionally.

Great pliers but cheap accessories
The pliers themselves have been great and the clipper will cut 20# braid so no complaints at all on the pliers. BUT, the belt loop to the sheath and the plastic bungee holder BOTH broke the first day I used the pliers. Not the end of the world, but pretty weak to pair a nice, solid set of pliers with such cheap accessories.

These pliers look nice. Unfortunately, they look like they are designed to be easily disassembled for cleaning (they are) and re-assembled. Latter is not the case, there is no way to re-assemble them with the spring.
Merchant Response:We do not advertise that you should dissemble our pliers. They will work a long time as-is.
September 12, 2016
Awesome pliers- great price
Extremely pleased with these pliers. First time upgrading to pliers with a braid clipper attached and will never go back. Awesome pliers for a great price.
ProsGreat size pliers for surf fishing Braid clipper works great
ConsThe pliers can be slippery when wet
August 23, 2016
My Favorite Pliers
I now own three pairs of these pliers. The primary reason is they cut heavy Fluorocarbon and thin braid. Most of my pliers won't cut braid. So far they have maintained their sharpness and spring. No complaints.
August 15, 2016
Lightweight and they do what they are supposed to. The line cutter works on braid and mono.
ProsLight. replacaple jaws and cutters.
ConsThe lanyard and the sheath are a little flimsy, but not too bad. They do the job.

Great pliers, great price!
These are all around great pliers at a great price. I have 3 pairs of these pliers and I have loved them from day one. You do not find better pliers until you jump up to pliers that cost $200 or more like the ABEL.
ProsCuts line great, the jaws have firm gripping power and they handle the saltwater environment great.
ConsThe width of the grip is a little large for my hand. Would not be good for women or children.

Used these pliers for 4 days of offshore fishing. By the end of day 4 the carabiner clip had broken. Also noted that pulling the hook out of one fish caused the pliers to not align properly when closed.

These pliers are probably worth the regular price of $60, but they are 50% off! Great price, great function (I love the braided line cutting component). Carabiner very convenient for keeping these close when you need to make tackle changes or unhook a trophy.

Aluminum Offshore Pliers
I fish often in saltwater, and all my pliers end up rusting so bad they won't open and close. These aluminum pliers do not rust, and are very easy to use. I caught some redfish the other day, and these pliers had the strength to easily remove the hooks from their VERY tough mouths. Best pliers I have ever owned, and for $28.95, the purchase was a no brainer!

Looks like a great product
Bought these cause the price was right! Good cutter with replacable blades, sheath is good with velcro retainer. Coil retainer great option but the split rings are cheap and bent out when I went to transfer another plyers on to them... why do that? The jaws on the pliers would not close flat enough to grab my 20lb braid. Sure it was a one off from the manufactor but they went in my tool box not my tackle box for that reason. The calutta split ring pliers I bought at the same time are in these sheath and are getting used all the time.
Prossheath replaceable cutting blades cost
Conscheap slit rings my pair the hardend jaws would not grab 20lb braid(if this was fixed they would be awesome)

Great pliers cheap holster
These pliers are great for the price. Strong with great line cutter. Only issue it has is the holster is of poor quality. I recommend cutting the Velcro strap off for better use. A harder case would be best but the pliers are still worth it.
ProsStrong Great line cutters
ConsCheaply made holster
September 10, 2015
These pliers are everything I was looking for in a pair of fishing pliers. Light weight, good grip and great cutting blades. They cut through braid like a hot knife through butter. For the price I don't think you'll find a better pair anywhere.
By Tommy Press
August 31, 2015
I didn't want to spent a lot of $$ for pliers/cutters, but needed something for braided line... plus I needed a new set of pliers. These pliers are a fraction of the cost of some name brand pliers... I'm really happy with them!
August 6, 2015
I ordered these admittedly with apprehension. The price seemed too good to be true, but figured I'd take a shot. Man was I surprised! These are great pliers. Comfortable and sturdy. I highly recommend.

Big money performance pliers at 1/3 the price
Have used more expensive pliers with the exact same performance. I spray a little corrosion X on them and haven't had any issues. Line cutters work great on braid and fluorocarbon.

April 17, 2015
These are my go-to pliers and they haven't rusted on me at all. I give a nice rinse and some wd-40 after each trip and that seems to do the trick! I've had these for a couple years now and they look brand new still! Cuts braid fairly well with the side pinchers and feels really well made. For the price, can't beat it!
ProsUsed on 100's of fish and still look brand new Solid quality but are not heavy

Nice pair of good quality pliers for the money. Has held up well so far in saltwater environment use.
ProsAluminum construction holds up well to saltwater
May 13, 2014
Good, but not great.
The tool works as described and the price is right. I took these out surf fishing with me during a recent outing. They held up well, except for the nose bent a little bit. They work fine even with the small bend. The two nose pieces just don't line up exactly like they had out of the box. They didn't rust, which is mainly what I was looking for. I'll keep using them until I can't use them anymore.
ProsCutters seem strong. They cut through 55lb braid and 80lb leader just fine. The coil connected to the sheath is great. Pliers don't end up in the sand or surf by accident. Sheath seems to hold up pretty well.
ConsThe nose bent slightly on my first outing with the pliers (although they still work fine). The little velcro piece in the sheath gets in the way (easy fix, just cut it off). Other than that, they seem great.

This is very nice tool ,in its price range I don't think you can find better. The downside to the wonderful price is the sheath is poorly stitched and will break quickly if you actually use it. Mine lasted three trips. But I got some nice pliers for a great price. I'll just by a Mak sheath I think then it will last longer then I do.

Was going to purchase these pliers as a stocking stuffer. They were a free gift as part of my purchase so a double Christmas bonus! Sturdy and quality construction, these should do well. Will see how they hold up after a couple of month of hard use. First impressions are very good.
ConsHandles have a wide grip angle when opened. Would be difficult to use with small hands.

Is it advisable to cut steel leaders (or only mono/braid)? How does the sheath attach to garmets? Do I have to thread a belt thru it, or will it simply clip over the waistband or shorts/swim trunks?
I would not recommend cutting steel leader with these pliers. They are for mono and braided lines only. The sheath features a loop on the back to run a belt through the sheath.
