Guide Testimonial

Professional Guide Testimonial for Hydros Aluminum Pliers

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!
