Best saltwater pliers. -

What a great pair of pliers, light weight but very strong. Fit tightly in to pouch but even if you drop them as a very good lanyard attached. Should get many years use out of them, espially as you actually get a set of replacement blades and jaws with them. Most other pliers I've looked at you had to pay a great deal extra to get them.

I know this is on the high side for price, but this tool is truly the best pliers I have used on the water. I have the fresh water version, and it is light, sharp, and strong. Highly recommend it.

Unmatched Quality -

I've used a lot of pliers from other co's over the past 20 plus years and none can compare to my Orvis Hydros Pliers. They are light in weight, fit comfortably in the hand, have excellent cutters with tough jaws for hook removal and cinching down knots...the quality is superb! Included sheath and lanyard are top notch as well!

I have not had a chance to put these to the test yet, but they seem to be very well made. They are lightweight, comfortable in the hand and the extra set of cutters are a nice feature.

The hydros "freshwater" aluminum pliers don't disappoint! They are well engineered and perform the most delicate/toughest of tasks exceptionally well. I've used them on trout and bonefish with great results. The included case and tether are also well designed. A great buy!

I have to give you four stars for your part in development of the Salt Water Pliers I have been trying out. They are incredible. The cutters are the best I have ever used. I have put away my scissors that I normally keep out for trimming fine leader and braided line because I can use the cutters on the pliers. I use these pliers for all my rigging and haven’t found anything that they don’t cut well, including hollow spectra that I use for backing on my big game reels. Spectra wore out one pair of scissors but not those cutters.
Not only the cutters, the pliers portions as well. I quickly grab with precision even the smallest fly out of the mouth of Striped bass and release the fish quickly back to the water. I never lose my grip with those pliers. I love the many holes in the handle to help when I am tightening the knots, just stick the hook in the hole, pull hard and test that knot. It’s great!
The finish is terrific, no rust after months of use, the lanyard is still in perfect condition despite some serious abuse and the holster is great. The belt loop is small, but my belt is small so it didn’t present a problem, besides, you already fixed that!
Great pliers at a great price, can’t top that!
