    A long time coming ....... - 5/28/2015
    By: from Gloucester uk

    Best forceps ever ! Right size and man size finger holes. The extra large hole allows two fingers to be inserted and hence greater handling stability. Used 2 days after delivery - perfect for extracting flies from WBT who are always determined to swallow the fly and therefore hooked deep in the mouth. The "stiffness" issue is easily remedied with a smear of petroleum jelly on the right parts. Best of all - they are BLACK.

    Perfect for Man-Sized Fingers - 1/8/2015
    By: from Oregon

    I don't know why anyone would use something different! Large holes accommodate man-sized fingers. I struggled for years to use the small holes on regular forceps, constantly getting my fingers stuck in the small holes. This little change has made a huge difference in helping to make my fishing trips much more enjoyable.

    I purchased these on a whim just to try the innovative large finger loop; they work great. Along with all of the other features that these forceps incorporate, the scissors standout for their ability to cut the tough braided lines that I often use spin fishing. The hinge is tight, but it should loosen with use.

    Finally some great forceps - 3/19/2013

    These forceps actually fit a guys hand! They are strong, and grip well. Having the scissors added on is great, and the little vise really bends down barbs with ease, the first time. These get the job done.

    Gorilla Hands Needed - 10/6/2012
    By: from Camp Hill, PA

    Nice features what with the big thumb loop, de-barbing area, scissors, etc. It, however, is a miserably short-sighted design otherwise: Designed for use by RIGHT HANDED ANGLERS ONLY. Not only are these extremely tight and stiff, the locking barbs are difficult to open one handed and impossible to open with your left hand. Mine were re-packaged and ready for return less than 10 minutes after opening them. They look nice but that's about it!

    Fantastic Forceps - 9/5/2012

    First off, let's get the name straight on these... it's the Large Loop, Power Jaws, Scissors forceps... You get all the bells and whistles in one product. I personally like a matte black finish to eliminate any potential glare on the water. I've been waiting on a large loop product that can comfortably fit my larger hands, even if I choose to wear a sunglove or stripping guard... The scissors are first rate - I can cut the finest tippet or 30# dacron. Crimping shot is made easy with the power jaws feature... For $20, I've got forceps, nipper and crimper all-in-one! A little stiff right out of the package, but a simple repositioning of my fingers and easy to lock down and re-open... Fantastic... thanks for offering a first rate product

    quite difficult to use - 7/16/2012

    These " patented jaws " are rather expensive, for forceps, and were a great idea. But in execution, the product needs tweeking. They grip tenaciously, far too much so in fact. Mine, are nearly impossible to open once closed. You'll need two hands, and unless you leave them open, which I've taken to doing, you won't be able to open them, one handed, just when you need them.
