In my opinion, a product must be reviewed within some defined guidelines. It is simply unfair for a producer, if its general-use product is being compared unfavorably against a professional-grade product. This is especially critical when there is a huge difference in the pricing of the two products.My rating for this fishing plier is based on its performance against the pricing as the guideline. From the appearance of the plier as it came out of the bag, I think it is worth the Amazon advertised price. Upon careful exam, I noticed the cutter does not provide a clean cut to the braided line. The cutter cuts the steel wire and mono line flawlessly. One would think by tightening the screw which hold the 2 separate pieces of the plier, the two sides of the cutter can meet up closer and provide a cleaner cut. Unfortunately, it does not. This is where the general-use versus professional grade comes in. The center screw of the plier had just enough slop, and the bodies of the two pieces of the plier where they met are just not flat enough, a clean cut is just not achievable. The cutter does work in cutting the braided line, but it is not a clean cut. If you are cutting a brand new braid line, it is acceptable. If the line had been through a couple cycles of soaking in the water (limb but dry), you would have a tougher time cutting through it. Again, it does cut through most of the strains of the braid, just not all at once. Repeated cutting is necessary to finish the cutting job.Another unadvertised feature of the plier is the closing of the plier at its nose. There is a built-in stop that does not allow my unit to make full contact at the nose. There is a 1/32 inch of spacing at full closure. I don’t think this is a problem though, because even the thinnest wire hooks would easily take up the gap. The plier does provide a firm grip of the hook at full closure. You just cannot use this plier for extreme precise work. The ring splitter pretty much negates anyone’s attempt in using the plier as a tweezers, as most of us fishermen would at some point.I have not had this unit long enough in the saltwater to assess the quality of the stainless steel. I am not expecting to abuse it by wrapping it in a wet salted rag for a week. I think this unit is good enough for me, at the price. If I had spent more than $15 for it, I would probably ask for my money back. Not if, but when I do drop this plier in the ocean, I would most likely buy another one.Oh, yeah. BTW, this item is shipped from China. My wife wanted to know why a woman from China shipped a package to my house. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply 3 of 3 people found the following review helpful Not worth the price paid, April 27, 2015 By Grenik (Houston) – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Booms Fishing Multi-function Stainless Steel Fishing Pliers for Line Cutting, Hook Remove and Lead Regulator More Size Available (Misc.) It is difficult to rate a product this inexpensive too poorly, but I am not a fan of this pair of pliers. Upon receipt, the tips were severely misaligned. I loosened the screw and tried to adjust, but that put a lot of play into pliers and I eventually tried to bend one of the pieces so it closed semi-aligned with the screw tight. They are lightweight and do not inspire confidence. I tossed them in under seat storage in the boat in case I ever need a backup pair, but these are not worth any more than the price paid, and probably much less. I would not trust these to perform when I need them. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply 3 of 3 people found the following review helpful Good Pliers, May 22, 2014 By Think Fish – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Booms Fishing Multi-function Stainless Steel Fishing Pliers for Line Cutting, Hook Remove and Lead Regulator More Size Available (Misc.) I was surprised when I used these fising, they seem to be good quality and appear to be made to last awhile. So far I would say these could be pliers that are good for a couple so fishing seasons. I would buy again. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply Leave a comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
