No tackle box is complete without a good set of pliers, and while you can have a good set, why not go for the best?
That’s where Browning and their Split Ring Aluminum Pliers come in, because losing a lure in the belly of a bass doesn’t need to happen as often as it does.
The machined aluminum construction is lightweight and anodized, making these quite possibly the last set of pliers you will ever need. The teeth are solid stainless steel and the replaceable cutter is made of tungsten carbide, an increasingly common material used in industrial machinery for its density and stiffness.
Rubber handles keep the pliers in one hand while you worry about the slippery fish in your other one, and the molded pivot sheath will keep the pliers safe while bouncing around in your tackle box or attached to your belt.
Even better, the sheath is connected to the pliers themselves with a lanyard, sure to help save the useful tool from going overboard more than once.
If you’ve still been using the same rusted, bent and aging pliers your dad used in his tackle box, it’s time to upgrade to something your kids can use, and still be using long after you’ve hung up your fishing rods for good. These Browning pliers are perfect.
