Choosing a right split pliers
Posted 10 February 2012 - 12:39 PM
One of the objective to visit Beijing International Tackle show was to find a right regular split pliers with cutter.
There are so many choices of split ring pliers. Our preference is about 8" with a strong jaw to open 300 plus lb split rings as well as to open even for 5/0 - 6/0 Treble hooks with braid cutter. Longer than 8" is too bulky for no apparent benefit.
After checking all pliers thoroughly at the booth, we brought a few sample to test.
We got the finalist. It has stainless steel jaw part and has a big jaw to open any heavy split ring. We like rubber cover on the handle as you see on the other pliers in the picture and the pliers we choose will have the rubber handle cover thought it cost $2 extra. The 8" pliers weighs only 5 oz.

When I compared both pliers, the pliers with a rubber handle is much secure and comfortable in my hand and there is no reason not to have it even it cost $2 more.
thanks goodness you have a rubber handle version. no more slip 'n slide. I will support the blue and rubber version.

We'll have them on your website by late April.
Kil they look great! Will you be posting them on your web site? Also, will you be at any of the upcoming NY and NJ fishing expos? If so bring a few JM PE-10 would love to give one a feel before the purchase.
We are not going at NY Suffern Show, but we are going at Somerset Show in NJ in late March.
Our shop is on the way to Suffern Show from GW Bridge and you can visit our shop before/after NY show.

It will take about 2 months to get the delivery and I expect them by the end of April.
Are you getting them in any time soon and what is the cost... I would love to have a good set of combo pliers
The price will be $40 - $45 depending on other cost involved.
