Excellent once they loosen up -
Great size overall. The scissor function is really what makes these so great. More often than not you don't need to use nippers unless you are dealing with tiny flies and light tippet. Their only downside is they are pretty tight when new and can be difficult to open. With time they loosen up and are fine. Storing new ones tightly clamped when new seems to help with the process of stretching them out so they loosen up.
Excellent scissor forceps -

Great product, well worth the money for a three in one tool.
Solid for Salt -
Scissors available to trim salt water flies while forceps do their job. 2 in 1 works!
This is my second pair, and this pair is much harder to lock/unlock than my first pair. Obviously liked my first pair enough to buy a second, but really hoping this second set loosens up over time.

...I found a set of forceps that provide a scissor function as well as a clamp. Like these so much, I bought four of 'em - one for each of my different fishing vests (bass, bass fly, fly, and snook/salt). Well-engineered and well-built, just tight enough out of the box to indicate they'll be easy to manipulate with just a bit of breaking in. If you flyfish, this is pretty much the only tool you need to hang on your vest.

Did not find the difficulty in opening/ closing the sissors/forceps. Very happy with the quality.

Sticky openning -

I have fly fished for many years and lost my favorite forceps this summer. I ordered these to replace them. Disappointed in the smoothness and force you need to use to open them up.
